SJ - August 5, 2020

Late in the Maple Leafs 3-0 win over the Blue Jackets, Toronto defenseman Jake Muzzin was taken off the ice on a stretcher.  The injury took place after an awkward collision with a Columbus player's leg.

Muzzin was down on the ice motionless following the hit.  The Maple Leafs later reported he was taken to the hospital where he awake and able to move his extremities.

The lack of a crowd only added to the eeriness of the situation.

The good news is he's able to move his extremities.  The bad news is that if he was knocked out by this hit he may have a glass jaw.

A life selling real estate might be more suitable for him.
