RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Carolina Hurricanes rookie forward Seth Jarvis was injured in Game 7 of the team's second round playoff series against the New York Rangers on Monday night.
Jarvis was knocked from the game on a jarring high hit by Rangers defenseman Jacob Trouba with about 12 1/2 minutes left in the first period. The hit sent Jarvis sprawling to the ice. Jarvis could only crawl back to the bench. The Hurricanes took a penalty for too many men on the ice while trying to sub for Jarvis. New York capitalized on the power play by scoring its second goal.
Jarvis was so wobbly once making it to the bench that he needed assistance from multiple teammates to get directed into the locker room tunnel.
The team soon ruled him out for the game due to what was described as an upper-body injury.
