Sea Dogs forward Stephen Anderson in hospital after body check

SAINT JOHN, N.B. - Saint John forward Stephen Anderson remains in a hospital after he was injured by a body check in Sunday's Quebec Major Junior Hockey League game against the Acadie-Bathurst Titan, the Sea Dogs said in a release Monday.

Anderson, 19, left the ice under his own power in the second period after taking an open-ice hit near the Titan blue-line. He did not return to the game.

The Morell, P.E.I., native was transported by ambulance to Saint John Regional Hospital shortly after the game following some complications.

The team said Monday that Anderson is conscious and resting at the hospital.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with Stephen and his family right now," Sea Dogs President Wayne Long said in a statement. "We are doing everything we can to support the family and the team."

Anderson has 11 goals and 25 points in 38 games this season.

Quote of the Day

You know what? We've played in some pretty special buildings along this playoff run so far. You start in Detroit, you go to Montreal, you come here … I think it's the first team to beat three Original Six teams to get to the Final if I'm not mistaken. That says how tough the road has been. Those are tough places to win.
