Blue Jackets minor leaguer has seizure after hit

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) -- A Columbus Blue Jackets minor leaguer had a seizure after being checked into the glass causing Sunday's game between the Springfield Falcons and Adirondack Phantoms to be suspended.

Springfield left wing Wade MacLeod was taken to the hospital and the team later said in a statement that the 26-year-old was stable and alert. The team is an American Hockey League affiliate of the Columbus Blue Jackets.

"We would like to thank everyone for the overwhelming show of support for Wade tonight," MacLeod's family said in a statement. "Wade is alert, in good condition, in positive spirits, and is resting comfortably at Baystate Medical Center. He will remain at the hospital while he undergoes tests. We are deeply appreciative of all the caring and kind words we have received from family, friends, and fans."

Adirondack defenseman Brandon Manning received a two-minute penalty for boarding on the play.

The coaches agreed to suspend the game in the second period with Adirondack leading Springfield 2-1. No makeup date has been announced.

MacLeod has four goals and seven assists in 20 games with the Falcons this season.
