During tonight's Winnipeg Jets versus St. Louis Blues' game, Winnipeg forward Andrew Copp took a blindside collision with contact to the head that left the forward in significant pain. Copp immediately dropped to the ice clutching his head, before slowly climbing to his feet and leaving the ice. Upon leaving the ice Copp was seen throwing his helmet down the tunnel in anger.


There was no penalty called on the play and even the announcers felt that the contact with Oskar Sundqvist was incidental. It does appear in the video that this was more of a collision than a hit.

Copp has had a very strong season thus far, he's notched 13 goals, 19 assists for 32 points so far this season. Copp is in the final year of his contract with a cap hit of $3,640,000 was expected to be a hot commodity at the trade deadline, but a significant injury could definitely impact his trade value.


Copp did not return for the rest of the game.
