If anything for Dominic Toninato, it was a memorable NHL debut. The Colorado Avalanche rookie suited up for his first-ever NHL game Saturday night and was promptly taken out of the game after just 4:01 of ice time. Midway through the first period of Saturday’s Avalanche-Nashville Predators contest Toninato was driven into the boards by Predators forward Austin Watson. After the hit, Toninato was seen grabbing his head, writhing on the ice in pain. He would eventually exit the game mostly under his own power.
