Niagara IceDogs goalie’s leg cut by skate in collision

A junior hockey game between the Niagara IceDogs and London Knights was stopped Thursday night after a gruesome injury to a 17-year-old goalie.

Tucker Tynan, a Chicago native who plays for the Ontario Hockey League’s IceDogs, was taken off on a stretcher after a high-speed collision in the crease from a Knights player.

Tynan’s leg was cut by the player’s skate, and trainers rushed onto the ice to tend to him and try to stop the bleeding.

The goalie was taken to the hospital, where he had surgery. Both teams left the ice and the rest of the game wasn’t played.
