Pacioretty took a vicious hit in the 2010-11 season from Zdeno Chara, knocking him out for the remainder of the season with a concussion and fractured vertebra.

Pacioretty returned in 2011-12, and had his best season of his career to date, tallying 33 goals and 32 assists. Many questioned if Pacioretty would ever play again, but he persevered and remains in the league.
