SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) -Dave Zenobi, the Florida Panthers' trainer who helped save right wing Richard Zednik's life, will be honored Thursday night for his efforts.
Zenobi will receive the ADT Good Sport Award, in recognition of his work in the moments immediately following Zednik's injury in Buffalo on Feb. 10. Zednik's neck was slashed by the skate of teammate Olli Jokinen, who fell headfirst to the ice.
Zenobi hurried to Zednik and pressed a towel to the player's gashed throat, trying to apply pressure and stop bleeding. Zednik's carotid artery was cut, surgeons that night repaired the damage, and he's now home in South Florida continuing to recover.
``Thanks to Dave Zenobi's brave and knowledgeable actions, one of the Panthers' most talented and beloved players is on the road to recovery and back with his family,'' ADT North America president John Koch said. ``When confronted with a crisis situation, Dave rose to the occasion.''
Zednik will also take place in the ceremony before the game against Pittsburgh.
``I am touched and humbled,'' Zenobi said.
