In case you weren't aware, Montreal Canadiens forward Jesperi Kotkaniemi is currently playing overseas in Finland. 

The Habs' loaned the forward so he could continue to get in some game action which is always good for younger players. 

However it always carries the risk of injury. 

It was a bit of a scary scene today. 

As Kotkaniemi was skating down into the offensive zone and towards the opponent's net he crashed into the boards. 

No word yet on his status but you can watch the play below.
