Medical staff quickly responded, and the Sea Dogs players cleared the area to allow for treatment. Crickard received medical attention for about 15 minutes while the game was halted. At the time of the incident, the Eagles were leading 6-0 in the third period, but the score became inconsequential as the focus shifted entirely to Crickard's well-being.
Crickard was taken to Cape Breton Regional Hospital, where he was conscious during transport and remained alert and conversational upon arrival. Fortunately, his vital signs were stable.
Saint John Sea Dogs head coach Travis Crickard has been released from Cape Breton Regional Hospital this morning after collapsing on the bench during last nights game against the Cape Breton Eagles.

The game was called final with 19:06 remaining in the 3rd period.

The following day, Crickard was discharged from the hospital. He's a 37-year-old coach in his second season with the Sea Dogs and previously served as an assistant coach during the team's Memorial Cup victory in 2021-22.
We wish him a speedy recovery.
