Ruutu Hit on Jagr

Video of Ruutu’s Hit on Jagr

Jagr left the game at the seven-minute mark of the second period after being slammed into the boards by Finland's Jarkko Ruutu, sustaining a cut to his forehead.

The NHL's leading scorer this season, Jagr laid face down in a pool of blood before he was helped off the ice.

After the game, Czech coach Alois Hadamczik ruled out a concussion and said it's possible Jagr could play Sunday against Italy.

The Czech team's medical staff was unavailable to comment on the winger's condition.

Ruutu won't face any further disciplinary action, according to the International Ice Hockey Federation, and is expected to play Sunday versus Canada.

  • It wasn’t a dirty hit. Later Martin Straka would go after Ruutu. So maybe it is an all done deal now.
  • Glen Sather must be livid. All NHL GM’s with star players in the Olympics must have collectively winced.
  • Bert, this afternoon, keep your head up when #37 of Finland is on the ice.
