MONTREAL - A baby struck in the head by a puck that star defenceman P.K. Subban tossed into the stands following the Montreal Canadiens annual open practice was released from hospital Monday.

The one-month-old girl's mother, Valerie Meloche, said on Facebook her daughter suffered a concussion when hit by the puck Sunday. Canadiens players tossed them into the crowd following the practice.

"Unfortunately, one of the fans who received a puck from P.K. Subban was just a month old and she stopped it with her head," Meloche wrote.

Baby Beatrice was taken to the Montreal Children's Hospital and kept overnight.

A team representative met with the family and invited Meloche, her husband and their four children to watch a future game at the Bell Centre in a private suite.

A spokesman said Subban also wanted to meet the family.
