Hockey is a fast paced and hard hitting game, unfortunately that pace and physicality sometimes leads to some serious injuries. That's exactly what happened during Sunday's game between the Peterborough Petes and Kamloops Blazers.

As Minnesota Wild prospect Kyle Masters chases the puck into the corner he's contacted by New York Rangers top prospect Brennan Othmann. As Masters crashes to the ice he immediately begins clutching at his tailbone on obvious pain. Medical staff immediately rushed to his side and immediately identified that he was in need of medical attention.

The hit can be scene below:




Reports from the arena stated that Masters wanted to leave the ice under his own power, but medical suggested otherwise. Today however the Blazers have provided the following update.

FOLLOWING HIS INJURY DURING THE MAY 28TH MEMORIAL CUP GAME, KYLE MASTERS WAS REMOVED FROM THE ICE BY STRETCHER. HE WAS FULLY AWAKE AND MOVING ALL OF HIS EXTREMITIES AND WAS TRANSPORTED TO THE ROYAL INLAND HOSPITAL EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT FOR FURTHER EVALUATION.

THANK YOU TO THE BLAZERS AND PETERBOROUGH'S MEDICAL STAFF AND BCAS PARAMEDICS FOR THEIR MEDICAL CARE ON THE ICE.


It's great to hear that Masters had function of both his arms and legs. He is expected to make a full recovery. The Blazers would go onto win the game 10-2, in what was a bitter sweet victory.
