Pittsburgh Penguins draft pick Kirill Tankov was taken to intensive care by ambulance Monday after a hard hit from behind into the boards during a game in Russia. Tankov was playing for SKA-Neva of the VHL when he was plastered into the boards by Artyom Maltsev. Tankov stayed down for a long time before finally getting on a stretcher and getting off the ice. Maltsev was booted from the game.


"It`s an alarming situation," said SKA-Neva head coach Alexander Titov. "Let's hope that everything will be alright. The player was taken to the hospital for tests and had a splint put on his neck.

"I hope that this injury will not be terrible and serious," he added.
