Today the Calgary Flames made the unfortunate announcement that one of their players has been struck by a vehicle and has been taken to the hospital.

Veteran Defenceman Rasmus Andersson was hit by a vehicle while riding his scooter.

At approximately 6:00 p.m. ET, Wednesday, February 8 in Detroit, MI, while riding a scooter on his way to dinner, Flames defenceman Rasmus Andersson was struck by a vehicle. Andersson was taken to a local hospital for a full battery of tests before being released last night.

Andersson is doing well, and he will remain with the team. He is listed as day-to-day.

Luckily for Andersson, it seems like he was not too harmed by the accident as he was released from the hospital last night.

Andersson is a key piece to the Flames blue line and has scored 7 goals and 27 assists in 51 games this season for the Flames. He plays in all situations for the Flames and will be a crucial piece in their playoff push.

UPDATE ON ANDERSSON: He's doing well and is in good spirits. He's very lucky - it certainly could have been a lot worse. He's a little rattled. We'll list him as day to day. He won't play tonight and then we'll see. No injuries we are overly concerned about but we will see.»
