SAINT JOHN, N.B. - Saint John Sea Dogs forward Stephen Anderson is scheduled to be discharged form hospital Friday, the team has announced.
The 19-year-old from Morell, P.E.I., was admitted to a Saint John hospital Sunday evening with upper-body injuries and subsequent complications following a body check in game a against the Acadie-Bathurst Titan.
Medical staff monitoring his condition have determined he is ready to leave the hospital, although the team says more home-based recovery time is necessary.
We were thinking about Rich back home, but I thought we did a great job getting mentally ready for this game. We're still in a big playoff push and we found a way to get two points. It's not easy. It hit our guys pretty good [Monday] night. We did a great job as a group.
