Winnipeg Jets defenceman Jacob Trouba left Friday's game against the St. Louis Blues on a stretcher after crashing head first into the boards.

 He has been taken to the hospital.

Trouba got tangled up with Blues defenceman Jordan Leopold chasing after the puck and was not able to stop his momentum as he fell.

Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff spoke to Trouba before he left for the hospital and said the defenceman was able to move his extremities.

The 19-year-old played 6:03 before leaving the game.
