Analysis: Letowski was released from the hospital and travelled with the team for its next game at Tampa Bay on Monday night. It is extremely unlikely he will play in that game, however.
News: Carolina Hurricanes forward Trevor Letowski was carried off the ice on a stretcher after apparently being knocked unconscious by a hit from Pittsburgh's Colby Armstrong in the first period Saturday night. Letowski was skating up ice from the Hurricanes' end when he made a drop pass to teammate Eric Belanger between the circles. Moments after he made the pass, and skating with his head turned in the opposite direction, Letowski was checked hard by Armstrong. Armstrong's shoulder clipped Letowski in the head, causing Letowski to drop limply to the ice. The hit appeared to be clean and no penalty was called. Letowski landed face down on the ice at the top of the slot and lay motionless for several minutes. After being attended to by the team's medical staff, he raised his head slightly and a pool of blood could be seen on the ice. After he was lifted onto a backboard and then a stretcher, Letowski had his neck placed in a brace before he was taken to a nearby hospital.
Analysis: Letowski is used more as an enforcer rather than a scorer eventhough he plays up front. He is not owned in any Fantasy leagues at this point and it is unknown how long he will be out of the Hurricanes lineup. Check back with us for further updates, but Letowski is not a viable Fantasy option on most nights.
