Ottawa Senators forward Scott Sabourin suffered a fractured nose Saturday but is expected to be released from the hospital Sunday, general manager Pierre Dorion announced.

Sabourin had to be stretchered off after he landed face-first on the ice following a collision with David Backes of the Boston Bruins early in Saturday's contest. Sabourin was tended to for several minutes, gave a thumbs-up as he was taken off the ice, and was then transported to a Boston-area hospital.

The 27-year-old gave his Instagram followers a glimpse at his condition Sunday morning.

Sabourin has appeared in 11 games for the Senators this season, his first in the NHL after playing parts of seven AHL campaigns.
