Laberge was picking up a lose puck near his own blue line when he was run over by Wildcats defenceman Zachary Malatesta.

Philadelphia Flyers prospect pick Pascal Laberge was concussed by a high hit from Moncton Wildcats defenceman Zachary Malatesta in QMJHL action on Saturday.

Laberge, a forward with the Victoriaville Tigres, was picking up a lose puck near his own blue line when he was run over by Malatesta.

Malatesta was assessed a five minute major and a game misconduct for checking to the head. The 20-year-old blue liner has been suspended indefinitely by the QMJHL.

Laberge, who has two goals and two assists in seven games, left the game immediately and did not return.

The 18-year-old centre was the Flyers second-round pick, 36th overall, last June.
