Bruins Prospect Ryan Donato scores twice, gets elbowed in the head in Olympic Quarterfinals

He’s doing great in the international contests, but he also had a real scary moment in this game.

Harvard man and College hockey standout Ryan Donato has been doing fantastic in the Olympics, and tonight he’s been just as good as ever, scoring a goal against Slovakia!

Check it out here:

But of course, the Slovaks couldn’t just make it an easy and fun time for the Americans, as Michal Cajkovsky decided to take a run at Donato and elbowed him in the head for his trouble.

Cajkovsky received a match penalty and would not return, as is the rules in international hockey. Donato would return.

It is currently 3-0 in the 2nd period, and the game is on NBCSN, if you’re still itching for some hockey.

EDIT (7:00 AM): Donato scored again in the USA's 5-1 win. He's got four goals in the tournament.
