Vancouver Canucks COO Jeff Stipec has released a statement regarding the fan struck by a puck at Rogers Arena on November 16th.
"The fan struck by a puck at last night's game received first aid treatment from St John's Ambulance medical staff, as well as on site assessment from a team physician. She was treated and cared for on site, then transported as a precautionary measure to a local hospital for further evaluation. We continue to be in communication with her and her family who have indicated she is home and resting comfortably. Out of respect for their privacy we are unable to provide further comment, but we are pleased to hear she is doing better.
Fan safety is our top priority at Rogers Arena. We commend the NHL officials for stopping play, and our first responders and medical staff for their attention and care. We strive to provide a game experience that is safe and enjoyable for all guests." - Jeff Stipec, COO, Canucks Sports & Entertainment
