Was on twitter and people were retweeting this from him.

Feeling very blessed with all the love and support I've received. I am feeling a lot better. Thank you everyone!


Didn't know what it was about so I looked it up and here is what happened

There was a scary scene in Springfield, Mass. on Sunday as an AHL game was postponed after Springfield Falcons winger Wade McLeod suffered a seizure on the ice following a hit.
The bright side is that the team reports heís stable and alert at a nearby hospital.
The 26-year-old is in his third season with the Columbus Blue Jacketsí AHL affiliate. TSNís Bob McKenzie reports that his parents and girlfriend were at the game and traveled with him to the hospital.
Both teams agreed to move the game back. The incident happened during the second period of a contest between the Falcons and Adirondack Phantoms.


Scary incident and glad to see he will be ok. He is also a local boy from Coquitlam.

I haven't seen a video yet but the description made it sound like an innocent hit. He kept skating for 30 seconds or so then headed to the bench, but went into the seizure before he got there.

Wow. That just goes to show how hits that aren't even to the head can affect someone's brain. I hope he recovers fully and has a successful career.

no it doesn't say anything like that. 5 bucks says he has Epilepsy and he was feeling odd hence the failed attempt to get to the bench. Epilepsy has some triggers, but doesnt need one to flare up.
