Springfield Falcons forward Wade MacLeod suffers seizure following hit

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. - Springfield Falcons left-winger Wade MacLeod suffered a seizure on Sunday after taking a hit into the glass during the second period of an American Hockey League game against the Adirondack Phantoms.

The Falcons said in a statement that the 26-year-old is stable and alert after being taken to a local hospital.

Adirondack defenceman Brandon Manning was assessed a two-minute penalty for boarding on the play.

MacLeod, a native of Coquitlam, B.C., picked up an assist on Ryan Craig's power-play goal in the first period.

The game was suspended in the second period with Adirondack leading Springfield 2-1. No makeup date has been announced.

MacLeod has four goals and seven assists in 20 games with the Falcons this season.

Quote of the Day

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
