Arizona Coyotes center Alex Burmistrov left the ice at the T.D. Garden in Boston after taking a hard check by the Bruins’ Colin Miller on Tuesday.

The team announced the center was taken to a hospital for evaluation.

During the Coyotes’ 4-1 loss, Burmistrov posted an Instagram of himself in a hospital bed with a message reading, “Im good.”

Burmistrov received a pass and had just sent the puck along when Miller came into him sideways and knocked him down. Burmistrov landed on his back and rolled partially onto his side, but otherwise did not move as first the Coyotes and then the Bruins medical staffs came out to tend to him.

Miller was immediately set upon by Arizona defenseman Jakob Chychrun, but the officials broke in before it could get too far.

Miller was given five minutes for charging and thrown out of the game, and Chychrun was given two minutes for roughing. The Bruins got a short-handed goal to make it 2-1 and took a 4-1 lead before the period was over.

Burmistrov gave a thumbs up to the crowd as he was stretchered off the ice.

The 25-year-old was picked up off waivers by the Coyotes this season after he was released from the Winnipeg Jets.

With Arizona, Burmistrov has appeared in 18 games, accounting for one goal and eight assists.
