Montreal, QC (SportsNetwork.com) - Boston Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk was taken off the ice on a stretcher early in the first period of Thursday's game against the Montreal Canadiens.

Boychuk went into the right-corner boards to try and chase down a puck and was pushed from behind by Montreal's Max Pacioretty. He hit the boards head first and collapsed to the ice.

Boychuk laid on the ice for several minutes with trainers attending to him. His whole body was immobilized and he was carted off the ice on a stretcher.

Pacioretty was issued a boarding minor on the play at 4:28.

Boychuk has averaged a little over 21 minutes of ice time per game this season, posting one goal and five assists in 26 contests.
