Tonight's Global Series game turned from a once-in-a-lifetime experience to disaster in mere seconds for one player.

Red Wings Defenseman Exits Global Series After Nasty Collision



The second period of the Global Series game spelled disaster for one Red Wings defenseman after he took a major fall into the goal post. Red Wings defenseman Jake Walman had to be helped off the ice after a scary fall in an awkward position.

Walman loses his footing and crashes into the net, hurt on the play. Needed to be helped off the ice...scary moment. Hope he's okay. #LGRW




Walman did not return to the game leaving the Red Wings down a player for the rest of the game.

Red Wings Fall Short On Global Stage



After being tied when Walman exited the Red Wings would snatch a two-goal lead. Eventually, they would let the lead slip away and lose 3-2 on a John Tavares game-winning goal. With Walman's 20 minutes a night now needing to be filled the Red Wings will likely look to fill it by committee. One player who could get an opportunity is a former first-round pick.

Former top pick Simon Edvinsson has been playing well in the AHL and could be primed for a call-up. Edvinsson had 9 games in the NHL last season where he accumulated 2 points. He could get another shot to show why he belongs.
