Jon Blum scored the only shootout goal for the KHL’s HC Admiral in their loss to Salavat Yulaev on Friday. While the goal was nice, the end result — aside from the loss — for Blum was not a good one.

The 27-year-old defenseman, who’s played 110 NHL games between the Nashville Predators and Minnesota Wild, got tripped up by Salavat goaltender Niklas Svedberg and crashed hard into the end boards.

Blum knew immediately something was wrong and was later diagnosed with an arm injury and will miss 5-6 weeks according to the team.
