A scary incident occurred in the Edmonton Oilers and Tampa Bay Lightning game on Tuesday night. Oilers forward Evander Kane fell to the ice and was apparently cut by a skate blade of Lightning’s left winger Pat Maroon.
Kane fell to the ice four minutes into the second period and as he was trying to get his footing a number of players came near to try and play a loose puck.

Lightning forward Patrick Maroon’s skate accidentally cut Kane on his left wrist. Kane remained on the ice for a brief moment, before jumping up and quickly skating to the ice.
Evander Kane is in a bad spot. Blood on the ice. His wrist appeared to get stepped on by Patrick Maroon. Kane got up immediately and bolted to the bench.
There are a lot of concerned looks on the Oilers bench.

According to Oilers Nation, Maroon, as well as players on the ice and from both benches, immediately signaled towards the Oilers training staff. The play was blown dead and paramedics joined Kane and the Oilers’ staff down the tunnel.

On the broadcast, Sportsnet’s Gene Principe said he was down the tunnel 15 feet away from where Kane came in and said the player was yelling “Help! Help! Help!”
Positive thoughts for Evander Kane here.
Maroon mistakenly cuts Kane’s wrist with skate. Lots of blood – immediately.
Gene Principe reports, when Kane got to room, he heard “Help! Help! Help!”
