The Bruins issued a statement this afternoon on Malcolm Subban, who was sent to the hospital lasst night after taking a puck to the throat in warmups.

"Malcolm Subban was struck in the throat with a puck Saturday night during pregame warmups. He was transported to Maine Medical Center and was diagnosed with a fractured larynx. He stayed overnight at Maine Medical Center and was transported to Mass General Hospital on Sunday for further evaluation. He is in stable condition and will be sidelined indefinitely. The team will provide additional details when they become available."

According to SportsInjuryClinic, "A fractured larynx occurs when a direct impact causes a break in the voice box." You can see a list of symptoms on that page. Basically: this is incredibly unlucky.

Mark Divver has speculated on twitter that Jeremy Smith will probably head back from Iowa soon to take Subban's place as one of Providence's goalies alongside Zane McIntyre.
