Colorado Avalanche netminder Pavel Francouz departed Tuesday's contest after just 31 seconds following a collision with Winnipeg Jets forward Mark Scheifele.

The 29-year-old appeared to hit his head on the post and was motionless on the ice for several moments. A team trainer eventually helped him off the ice.

Scheifele was handed a two-minute minor for goaltender interference on the play.

Francouz was replaced by 22-year-old Adam Werner, who makes his NHL debut with the abrupt appearance.
