Winnipeg Jets forward Bryan Little received 25-30 stitches Tuesday night after being struck in the head by a puck at Bell MTS Place.
“During the third period of last night’s game versus the New Jersey Devils, Winnipeg Jets forward Bryan Little was struck near the ear by a shot. Before the completion of the game, Little was transported to St. Boniface Hospital where he received 25-30 stitches to close a laceration,” the team said in a statement.
“Little was subsequently transferred to the Health Sciences Centre’s Neurological Unit last night for further observation. Little was alert at all times and is in good spirits this morning.”
The 31-year-old fell to the ice after being on the receiving end of a slapshot by teammate Nikolaj Ehlers.
Little has two goals and three assists in six games with the Jets this season. He missed nine games at the start of this year while recovering from a concussion.
