Bloody Scene in Calgary as Player is Rushed to Hospital

We've seen gruesome injuries on the ice quite a lot in the sport of hockey, and recently, the Calgary Wranglers, the Flames AHL affiliate saw a horrific scene as one of their top prospects had to be rushed to hospital.

A gruesome scene


That was Jeremie Poirier, one of the Flames top prospects who was cut by a skate, but thankfully, it has now been revealed that he is okay and will make a full recovery, but will be out indefinitely.

The 21-year old from Quebec suffered a similar injury to Evander Kane from a year ago, and while the bloody scene was tough to watch, it's great to hear that the surgery could get him back on the ice sometime this season.

A talented prospect

While often overlooked in the Flames prospect rankings by the likes of Dustin Wolf, Matt Coronato and Connor Zary, Poirier has been making a major name for himself this season.

In four games this year in the AHL, Poirier has notched 1 goal and 7 points, but unfortunately, this latest injury will keep him out for some time, but at 21-years old, the Flames still hold out plenty of hope for their young defenseman.
