 CHICAGO (AP) -Blackhawks defenseman Ryan Stokes was hospitalized Wednesday night after sustaining a severe cut on his face, presumably by a skate, during Chicago's 4-3 preseason loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Stokes bled on the ice late in the third period after he tried to check Columbus forward Jared Boll. He fell in a pile along the boards and then skated off under his own power. Stokes was taken by ambulance to the University of Chicago Hospital after the game to be stitched.
Blackhawks spokesman Jim De Maria said Stokes would likely spend Wednesday night in the hospital for observation.
It was the second serious injury for the Blackhawks in their second preseason game. Rookie center Jonathan Toews, Chicago's first-round pick in last year's draft, broke his right index finger and is expected to be sidelined two-to-three weeks.
The 19-year-old Toews, chosen third overall in the 2006 draft, was injured when a puck struck his hand late in the second period, Blackhawks coach Denis Savard said.
Toews helped lead Canada to the gold medal in this year's world junior tournament and is expected to play for the Blackhawks this season.
Savard said he hopes Toews will return in time for Chicago's regular-season opener on Oct. 4 at Minnesota.
