On Thursday night, the Niagara IceDogs of the Ontario Hockey League lost their goalie Tucker Tynan after he was bleeding profusely following a collision in his own net.
Tynan went down and fans noticed something was tragically wrong after the collision. A skate cut his leg and Tynan needed immediate help.
After being down for some time, Tynan was eventually stretchered off the ice and rushed to the hospital where he underwent emergency surgery.
On Friday, Tynan tweeted from his hospital bed, where he is stable and ready for recovery. He wanted to share this message with fans who have supported him after he sustained this scary injury.
He is looking forward to recovery.
The IceDogs took the time to thank the paramedics and teams’ training staffs who came to the rescue.
“We would like to sincerely thank our training staff and medical staff of the London Knights training staff, and the medical staff of the Niagara Health System in St. Catharines for their immediate and precise attention in treating Tucker Tynan tonight.”
