More interesting news is coming out of this. Aparently there was no ambulance available at the time and the arenas defibrillators were not in working order.
This is an interesting topic that I believe should be discused. This happened to a young man who was about the age of a average college freshman. He was a world class athlete and top prospect in the NHL, yet he is no longer with us today. Tragic events like this are happening to more and more young athletes.
I am a former MSU player and was blessed to play in a rink that had a working defibrillator available for everyone at all times.(saw it save a elderly mans life once) The team also had athletic trainers from our university trained in CPR on staff incase something happened during the games. Over my time in the league I saw teams that were prepared and some that were not. What are teams in the league/ACHA doing to insure the safety of the athletes?
