Denver Pioneers goaltender Marc Cheverie had a scary moment last night as he left the game with a severe cut to his leg. Western College Hockey Blog has the details of the play:â†µ
Goaltender Marc Cheverie had to leave the game early in the third period, with what sounded like a pretty nasty injury. It sounds like MSU’s Justin Jokinen was tripped by Denver’s Patrick Wiercioch—Wiercioch received a 2-minute slashing penalty on the play—and Jokinen slid skates first into Cheverie and caught Cheverie’s leg with his skate.â†µ
It sounds that Cheverie, a Florida Panther prospect, is going to be alright. It just took a bunch of stitches to close up the gash and Cheverie will miss some time this season to heal.
