KHL Player Suffers Concussion After Fans Drop Him

Celebration was rampant after the KHL's Barys Astana won their first playoff game last week. Unfortunately for Barys Astana forward Talgat Zhailauov, fans were a little too celebratory after they dropped him on his head.

As Puck Daddy reports, Barys Astana players returned home after beating Avtomobilist Yekaterinburg in the opening round. A group of fans decided to throw Zhailauov in the air in joy. That turned out to be a very bad idea.

Zhailauov was taken to a nearby hospital and suffered a concussion. It's unknown how long it will take the 28-year-old to recover. Barys Astana hopes that he will be back in time when the team starts the second round later this week.
