Bryan Main Update

I know a lot of you have been wondering about the condition of Bryan Main so we fired off an email to verify his condition. As Bill Hunt kindly let us know last night in the comments, Bryan had a CT scan that came back negative (negative = good) and was able to walk out of the hospital under his own steam. No time frame has been given for his return to play and really isn't important in the scheme of things. We are just happy to know Bryan is alright.

The situation was eerily similar to what happened to Sebastian Savage of U de M a few years back. The puck was dumped deep into the Tommies end in the final 10 seconds of the first period. Icing was waved off and Ben Van Lare of Dalhousie followed Bryan into the corner of the LBR where the Zamboni comes onto the ice. Through the race to get to the puck Bryan lost his footing and went head long into the end boards. Charles Lavigne immediately summoned for help and fortunately Dr. Graeme Young was close by to render assistance. Bryan was immobilized and taken to the hospital on a back board.

We chalk this one up to good luck and thank God everything is OK with Mr. Main.

  2. I know Don Cherry hates when these things happen when there is touch icing when people get hurt (like Kurtis Foster) but even on no touch icing its a scary thing. Glad Mainer was able to walk out of the hospital under his own power.
