There was a scary scene in Springfield, Mass. on Sunday as an AHL game was postponed after Springfield Falcons winger Wade MacLeod suffered a seizure on the ice following a hit.

The bright side is that the team reports he’s stable and alert at a nearby hospital.

The 26-year-old is in his third season with the Columbus Blue Jackets’ AHL affiliate. TSN’s Bob McKenzie reports that his parents and girlfriend were at the game and traveled with him to the hospital.

Both teams agreed to move the game back. The incident happened during the second period of a contest between the Falcons and Adirondack Phantoms.

    Yikes. Hope he’s ok. I wonder if he has a history of them.

    Saw him score the first hat trick in Evansville Icemen history earlier this year. Heck of a guy. Glad he is alert and responsive!
