Hockey sometimes goes completely by the wayside. As in the case of the young forward Jakub Kos, who was seriously injured in a match in the second highest Finnish competition and according to available information, his career is in danger.

The incriminated situation took place on Friday, March 3 during the match between Hermes and KOOVEE. During one of the high-speed fights, Kose hit the guard Eemeli Ylitalo hard.

According to the footage published by the Mestis league on YouTube, it was immediately clear that this was a very serious injury. The Czech talent fell with his head on the fence, then remained lying motionless on the ice.

After a long treatment, the ambulance took him to the hospital. The Finnish server jattoaika.com reported that doctors diagnosed him with a serious neck injury, and there was a high risk of paralysis.

A more detailed prognosis is currently unknown. Defender Ylitalo received a penalty in the game for a nasty tackle, and the league then suspended him for four games.

Nineteen-year-old Kos is a member of the Brno Warriors, later he grew up in the youth categories of Komety. He drew attention to himself for the first time during the 2018/19 season, when he dominated the statistics of the entire junior extra league with 82 points.

After a breakthrough year, he headed to Finland and continued to develop in Ilves Tampere. He already has 20 starts among the local elite, this year he gained experience mainly in the lower Mestis league.

A stable member of the youth national teams, he also caught the attention of overseas scouts: he was picked up by the Florida Panthers in the sixth round of the 2021 draft.

At the turn of the year, Kos won silver medals at the championship in Canada with the Czech 20-year-old. Domestic fans surely remember his equalizer from the final contest against the Maple Leafs.

We can only hope that the youngster with a promising hockey future will be okay.
