Boston Bruins prospect Jeremy Lauzon (second round pick in the 2015 draft) was cut in the neck during a game and rushed to the hospital for surgery about an hour ago:
Jérémy Lauzon des #Huskies a été transporté à l'hôpital. Il a été coupé au cou. Il est dans un état stable. #tvasports— Mikaël Lalancette (@MLalancetteTVA) April 16, 2016
Jeremy was playing in what might be the most Quebecois matchup of all time: the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies playing the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada in the QJHML playoffs. Prior to his injury, Lauzon's team had not let in a goal in over three games against the Armada, apparently setting a QMJHL playoff record. The game is in the waning minutes and the Huskies should be cruising to victory shortly.
Early reports say that Jeremy Lauzon is, thankfully, in stable condition. We wish him a speedy recovery!
Update from Uncle Bob:
Reps for Jeremy Lauzon, BOS prospect from Rouyn-Noranda taken to hospital, said he "sustained neck laceration and he's out of danger."— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) April 16, 2016
Lauzon undergoing surgery for neck laceration. BTW, Lauzon's father, a surgeon, is with his son at hospital tho not performing the surgery.— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) April 16, 2016
Update: TVA sports had the video. Only watch it if you want to see a neck laceration occur:
