Hockey Game Turned Tragic: Dallas Stars Prospect Matej Blumel Stretchered Off

Matej Blumel, a prospect with the Dallas Stars, was struck hard against the boards on Friday and lay immobile on the ice early into the first period. The young winger was quickly attended to by the trainers after the players realized something was wrong.

Prospect Ozzy Wiesblatt of the San Jose Sharks struck Blumel. The Stars prospect was sent to the ice during this play and did not move:

Blumel was carried off the ice and rushed to the hospital in an ambulance after being removed on a stretcher. The game was delayed before starting again.

More as the story unfolds.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
