A Russian hockey team has asked fans to give blood to help a player who was badly hurt during a game.

Avangard Omsk forward Nikolai Lemtyugov suffered internal injuries after being hurt in a Kontinental Hockey League game Tuesday. He was rushed to the hospital and had his spleen removed.

Avangard called on fans with the same blood type to come to the hospital in the Siberian city of Omsk and donate to help Lemtyugov recover.

The club published pictures Wednesday of fans and the club president arriving to give blood. The club says Lemtyugov is still in intensive care but is ''stable with no complications.''

After Lemtyugov left the ice in the first period, Avangard lost to Barys Astana of Kazakhstan 4-3.
