Tyler Wood suffered a major head injury in the 3rd period in Listowel.
He was taking to Listowel hospital and than transported to London for more test.
Don't know to many details. The line score shows he was in a fight ( fighting penalty ) in the 3rd period.
And his helmet was off ( playing without a helmet)
Never like to see or hear anything like this.
Thoughts and prayers go out to this young man and his family.

I'm told he took his helmet off for the fight, lost his footing and slammed his head on the ice. He suffered major head trauma, including a seizure, from what I was told.

I wish him a speedy recovery and I can't imagine seeing anything like that happen.

I hate to point out the obvious, but this is why the OHA implemented the playing without a helmet gross misconduct penalty.

Sometimes you just have to straighten your crown and remind them who they're dealing with.
