DETROIT (AP) - Columbus Blue Jackets center Artem Anisimov has been released from a Detroit hospital after a scary hit in a game with the Red Wings on Thursday night.
Team spokesman Todd Sharrock confirmed on Friday that Anisimov is flying home to Columbus along with assistant athletic trainer Nates Goto.
``He will see our team doctors at some point but I don't know if that will be today,'' Sharrock said.
Anisimov was taken off the ice on a stretcher after being struck in the head by Red Wings defenseman Kyle Quincey. Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards said after his team's 3-2 win that Anisimov was alert and stable at the hospital.
Anisimov was part of the big deal last summer which sent Rick Nash to the New York Rangers.
