Arizona Coyotes leading scorer Clayton Keller was taken off the ice on a stretcher after suffering a leg injury in Wednesday night's 5-2 win over the San Jose Sharks.


Keller was taken to a local hospital for further evaluation, and the Coyotes said they would update his status Thursday.

"We know it will be long-term. He'll recover. Right now, it's not the injury, it's the human. It's Kells the person. He competes so hard. To see him suffer and have a significant injury, it's extremely difficult." - André Tourigny



Keller was injured with 5:15 to go in the third period. He was skating toward the Sharks' net when he lost his stride and crashed into the boards behind the goal. He lay on the ice for about five minutes before being taken off the ice on a stretcher, giving a thumbs up as he left.

Later in the evening, Keller mentioned via his Twitter account that his season was over. He also took the opportunity to thank his teammates, fans and medical staff.
