Blackhawks’ Alex Vlasic exits second period vs. Vegas with injury originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago
The play happened before the midway mark of the middle frame when Vlasic took a high hit from Golden Knights forward Brett Howden. He looked a little disoriented after the hit and needed a few seconds to collect himself.
I didn’t see any head contact, but Blackhawks head coach Luke Richardson was seen yelling to the official about it being a potential blindside hit. It’s hard to disagree with him.

The Blackhawks are obviously sensitive to that hit because it’s what knocked out Taylor Hall, who’s on injured reserve with a shoulder injury.
