Red Wings Tweet out a McIsaac update

From the Red Wings:

Update: Sportsnet provided a description

McIsaac was hit from behind by Blue Jackets prospect James Malatesta late in the first period and had to be stretchered off the ice after laying motionless. Malatesta was assessed a game misconduct.

The Red Wings said McIsaac has feeling in all of his extremities and was transported to a local hospital for further observation as a precaution.

The 21-year-old blueliner was selected 36th overall by the Red Wings in the 2018 NHL Draft and played for Canada’s world junior team in both 2019 and 2020.

He played 10 games with the AHL’s Grand Rapids Griffins last season and registered two points.

As did The Athletic’s Max Bultman:

McIsaac lost consciousness taking a hit from behind into the boards by Blue Jackets forward James Malatesta, who was given a game misconduct. As McIsaac was being stretchered off, his eyes were open and he was talking, according to The Athletic’s Scott Wheeler.
