Winnipeg Jets fans were horrified after seeing Vlad Namestnikov down on the ice after being hit by a flying puck in today's playoff match against the Colorado Avalanche. Now, we have an update on the player's condition.

The Winnipeg Jets attempted to tie their series today against the Colorado Avalanche. However, the game had to pause momentarily after their center Vlad Namestnikov was hit by a slapshot in the head form Nate Schmidt, resulting in his collapse onto the ice.
