Sharks defenseman Matt Tennyson was checked from behind by St. Louis forward Ryan Reaves in the Sharks 6-3 win earlier today. Reaves received a game misconduct and will surely be getting a call from the Department of Player Safety. Here is the hit:
It is not pretty. Tennyson was out cold before he hit the ice. Head coach DeBoer says it's probably a concussion.
Luckily, the Sharks will be able to more than fill his spot in the lineup. Brenden Dillon is expected to play in Colorado and new addition Roman Polak should suit up as well. Dylan DeMelo will probably be the guy coming out of the lineup.
