Arizona Coyotes forward Brad Richardson was stretchered off the ice Thursday after an awkward collision with Nikita Tryamkin, in which he attempted to avoid a check from the Vancouver Canucks defenseman.

Richardson's right leg was tangled under Tryamkin's weight as he attempted to duck underneath, and medical personnel focused on that area as they tended to the veteran.

The Coyotes later announced Richardson is being transported to hospital for further evaluation for a lower-body injury.

Richardson scored his fifth goal of the season earlier in the game.
