Konstantin Komarek suffers severed tendon after getting cut by skate (video)

MAR 23, 2023  (7H52)      TJ TUCKER
This is one of those things you never like to see. Konstantin Komarek, an Austrian who's played the vast majority of his professional career in Sweden, has been knocked out of the SHL playoffs after having his wrist cut by the skate of an opponent in a freak accident. Reports confirm he suffered a severed tendon.

The incident happened when Komarek, who plays for Lulea, was fighting for position with Vaxjo's Martin Lundberg. During the play, Lundberg's leg came up, with his skate going right across Komarek's wrist. Komarek was called for interference on the play. As you can see in the video below, it's while he's on his way to the penalty box when he realized something was wrong.


The end result is summed up in the picture below, which we'll warn you in advance is quite graphic.

According to AftonBladet, Komarek was not taken to hospital right away, and the gash was stitched up in the arena.

"A tendon has gone in his hand, so he is gone. He will recover, but he is away for a while," said Thomas Berglund of C More.

Vaxjo won the game in overtime and now has a 3-1 series lead over Lulea.
