NHL Prospect Kyle Masters Suffers Serious Injury, Removed from Ice on Stretcher

Kyle Masters of the Kamloops Blazers needed a stretcher at the Memorial Cup after an unruly fall on the ice. When Brennan Othmann hit Masters during the Blazers’ match against the Peterborough Petes, Masters fell awkwardly into the side boards. Masters eventually needed a stretcher to leave the ice after lying immobile for an extended period. Just as he was being wheeled away, Othmann came over to tap Masters and apologize.

Kamloops issued a statement following the game, which ended with a 10-2 Blazers victory over the Petes. When Masters was taken out of the ice, they reported that he was awake and had complete movement in all of his limbs.

The Minnesota Wild selected Masters in the fourth round (118th overall) of the 2021 draft.

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!
