Per NBC:

Wolski, who plays for Magnitogorsk Metallurg, crashed into the boards and is reportedly out for the season with two broken cervical vertebrae (the vertebrae of the neck), spinal cord trauma, and a concussion.

Wolski played for the Rangers in 2011 and played just 37 games for the team. He tallied 6 goals and 13 assists for the Blueshirts. He told TSN’s Gino Reda afterwards that he felt “lucky” because the injury could’ve been a lot worse.

Wishing Wotjek a speedy and full recovery.
