A scary incident took place at the Calgary Flames practice when, according to the team, 29-year-old defenseman T.J. Brodie “experienced an episode on ice at practice” on Thursday afternoon.
Brodie collapsed and started convulsing. Fire and paramedics arrived quickly on the scene and were working on him. He was removed from the ice on a stretcher and it was later revealed he was responsive and looked to be ok.
The Flames made an official announcement not long after saying, “He is alert and responsive and has been transported to local area hospital for evaluation.”
The Flames cancelled the rest of their practice following the incident and
no word has been given if Brodie will be available for the Flames next game on Saturday. That said, whether he plays or not this weekend is far less important than making sure he’s healthy.
There was no diagnosis revealed or an explanation as to why Brodie all of a sudden fell to the ice. If medical personnel or the team are aware, it is believed they will reveal whatever they deem important at their own time.
