Right in front of me!!!!  Made me want to cry.  Word now is he has a breathing tube in because of his throat swelling up.  After he was taken to the hospital, I knew it wasn't good when one of the owners rushed out to be with him.  So young, please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

Oh wow, that's scary.  Hope he makes it through okay.

He is being moved to Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse.  Can't be very good if they are doing that.   :shock:    He is in stable condition to be moved but they aren't saying much more than that.  How sad for everyone.  This has to affect those young teammates of his.  Sad so sad.

Man, you hate to see something like that happen. Sending positive vibes for a speedy recovery.

remember two weeks ago when we had organizational depth at the D position...

Definitely scary sh*t!!  A junior (or possibly high school) player died this year, I believe not too long ago, with the same type of injury and he had a neck guard on (although with the intensity of the shot, a guard wouldn't help....more for protection from having one's throat slit).  Out west I think it happened.  I heard on the pregame that the B-Sens trainer considered performing a tracheotomy at the rink due to the difficulties Wiercioch had with breathing!!!  Hopefully, he will recover fully from this.  Very scary.........

Luckily the hospital is only 5 minutes away and there is always an ambulance on stand by at the Arena.  He is seeing a throat specialist in Syracuse.  Hopefully they will be able to help him there.

Hopefully get recovers soon, and well...




I agree with Rose that a throat guard wouldnt have helped MUCH, but Ive often wondered why more NHL player dont wear them? I mean, even the Goalies dont wear throat guard in most cases and they are in pile-ups regularly.


When I played I had a skate cut through one of mine and if I didnt have it that would have been it..

That's good news. Sounds like it might be a long recovery though.

Just an update.  Patrick is getting a second opinion from a doctor in Boston regarding the damage done to his vocal cords and windpipe.  Reports are he is doing very well though.   :drink:

Good to hear. A friend's son had a similar incident a few years ago, and has permanent damage to his vocal chords.

Patrick has been at practices, watching mostly but has been on the ice.  He is still seeing specialist and Kleinendorst said it will be a long haul for him.

Thanks CM.
That sucks. So, at this point we're hoping for full recovery and a strong comeback next season?

Just heard on the Team that Patrick took his first full practice today in Binghamton with only one drill that he did not do.  They are now thinking it's a matter of weeks (only) before he will be back playing.  Good news!   :thumbsup:
