Atlanta Thrashers Defenseman Freddy Meyer Collapses At Center Ice


The Thrashers are in the midst of a collapse of their own, but it's always disconcerting to see a player do it. Ondrej Pavelec collapsed just a few minutes in to the first game of the season on October 8th, and was out nearly a month due to an undiagnosed reason.

Fortunately, there was a diagnosed reason for this last night (collapse is at the fifteen second mark):

Freddy Meyer was hit earlier by Calgary forward Tim Jackman, and then was hit again shortly afterward by Curtis Glencross. Meyer said that he felt dizzy and was trying to make it to the bench, but obviously he did not make it. He left the ice under his own abilities, but was out for the rest of the game with an "upper body injury." He'll presumably undergo tests to make sure he is concussion-free.

With Tobais Enstrom also out due to a broken finger on his right hand, the Thrashers are operating with just five healthy defensemen. Expect a call up, possibly in the form of Arturs Kulda, before Saturday evening's game against the Carolina Hurricanes.
