Friday night in Anaheim, Urho Vaakanainen was seriously injured. The young defenseman fell hard into the end boards striking his head and neck hard. Vaakanainen was placed in a neck brace and removed from the ice before being transported to a local medical facility.

Friday night the Ducks provided an update on their official Twitter account.
Ducks defenseman Urho Vaakanainen was taken to UCI Medical Center for evaluation after being injured during tonight's game. He has full movement in his extremities and is fully conscious and alert.

According to the Ducks, Vaakanainen was released from the hospital Friday night. The team finally provided an additional update today.
Injury Update:
Urho Vaakanainen was released from the hospital Friday night and continues to improve.

Vaakanainen being released from hospital is a positive sign and hopefully he's at home resting comfortably. It would appear Vaakanainen likely suffered a concussion, which you never want to see.
