Sudden blow to back of knee

I was playing road hockey this evening, I'm 17 years of age. I was playing the position of goalie, someone took a shot and for some reason or another I turned around, and took the ball to the back of my knee. Almost at the end of hamstring, on that tendon/ligiment that you can feel there. This ball must have been going at least 40km/h. So I've been in some good discomfort since, no pressure on the leg, also can't bend it that well. I'm just wondering if its worth going to see a doctor over in the morning if it still aggrivating me? I really don't like wasteing their time with petty things. Any idea if there would be something they could do or not for this?
