Blake Geoffrion injury video is horrifying; J.P. Cote sends well wishes

Blake Geoffrion was hospitalized after a hit from J.P. Cote in AHL action between the Syracuse Crunch and Hamilton Bulldogs in Montreal Friday night, and after seeing the video of the hit, that's no surprise.

I watch a lot of hockey and I've seen a lot of nasty hits, but the sound of that collision is a rare and horrifying one that's sticking with me a bit. Amazingly, Geoffrion was able to get up and skate off the ice under his own power before being sent to a Montreal hospital.

On Saturday morning, Cote sent Geoffrion his well-wishes.

Best of luck to both men -- Geoffrion for a full recovery and Cote, who's hopefully not beating himself up too much after an unfortunate result to a clean hit.
