    (CNN)Calgary Flames defenseman Rasmus Andersson is "doing well" after the scooter he was riding was struck by a vehicle in Detroit, a day before a game against the Red Wings, Calgary general manager Brad Treliving told reporters Thursday.

    Andersson was heading to dinner Wednesday when his scooter was struck by a vehicle, according to Treliving. The 26-year-old was taken to a hospital for a "full battery of tests" and was later released.
    "We're lucky. Very lucky. It could have been a lot worse," Treliving said. "We want to make sure that we thank all those involved and let everybody know that Ras is doing OK."
      Andersson's playing status is considered day-to-day.
        The incident occurred while Andersson was going through a crosswalk and Treliving made it clear that no alcohol was involved.
