Saint John Sea Dogs Stephen Anderson battles with Charlottetown Islanders Ryan Graves Saturday night in Saint John, N.B.
Morell’s Stephen Anderson is conscious and resting in hospital after being injured in a Quebec Major Junior Hockey League game Sunday in Saint John, N.B.
The 19-year-old Saint John Sea Dogs forward was injured by a check during a game with the Acadie-Bathurst Titan. A news release from the Sea Dogs on Monday said Anderson left the ice under his own power in the second period after taking an open-ice hit, but did not return to the game.
He was transported by ambulance to Saint John Regional Hospital shortly after the game following some complications.
"Our thoughts and prayers are with Stephen and his family right now," said Sea Dogs president Wayne Long. "We are doing everything we can to support the family and the team."
Anderson has played parts of three seasons with the Sea Dogs, registering 11 goals and 25 points in 38 games this year.
The Sea Dogs said it would provide updates on his condition when they are available.
