DEVELOPING: AHL Game Suspended After On-Ice Seizure

((HT: The AHL/HockeyVideoHD))

The game between the Springfield Falcons and Adirondack Phantoms was suspended when Columbus Blue Jackets prospect Wade McLeod was checked into the boards by Phantoms' defenseman Brandon Manning and, subsequently, suffered a seizure on the ice.

Manning got a two-minute penalty for boarding on the play...

Here's the hit and McLeod being taken off the ice...


McLeod is listed as stable in a Springfield area hospital.

The team released the following information on their website:

Springfield Falcons forward Wade MacLeod was stable and alert after suffering a seizure following a hit into the glass during the second period of Sunday afternoon's game against the Adirondack Phantoms.

MacLeod was brought by ambulance to Baystate Medical Center in Springfield. Players and coaching staffs on each team unanimously agreed to postpone the game.


The family released a statement on their own:

"We would like to thank everyone for the overwhelming show of support for Wade tonight. Wade is alert, in good condition, in positive spirits, and is resting comfortably at Baystate Medical Center. He will remain at the hospital while he undergoes tests. We are deeply appreciative of all the caring and kind words we have received from family, friends, and fans."
