Scott Sabourin speaks with reporters for the first time since his scary injury


  • Over a month ago, Senators forward Scott Sabourin suffered a scary injury against the Boston Bruins in a collision with David Backes.
  • Backes was also sidelined for about a full month due to an upper-body injury sustained in the collision, but Sabourin caught the worst of it as he had to be stretchered off the ice while both teams cleared their benches in a show of support.
  • Sabourin has since returned for the Senators’ skate in a non-contact sweater.
  • He hasn’t been medically cleared from his concussion yet, but he did speak to reporters for the first time since his injury and provided an update on his recovery.
  • The hockey world really rallied around him after his injury, and it was devastating to see the 27-year-old AHL journeyman go down just 11 games into his first NHL season.
  • Considering this is what he looked like a month ago, it’s great to see that Sabourin is getting his legs back underneath him as he makes his way back to full health.
