Northeastern University alum Wade MacLeod was released from Baystate Medical Center on Monday afternoon, one day after suffering a seizure on the ice during an American Hockey League game between his Springfield Falcons and the Adirondack Phantoms. MacLeod experienced the seizure after being sent into the boards by Adirondack’s Brandon Manning late in the second period of Sunday night’s game. Officials chose to suspend the rest of the contest as MacLeod was rushed to the hospital, but he was reported in stable condition later that night and left the hospital with his family the following afternoon, according to Masslive.com. An official diagnosis of MacLeod’s injury is expected later this week. Both the 26-year-old and a spokesman from the Springfield organization declined comment, but MacLeod’s stepfather, Garth Essery, said that he is in strong condition. “Wade is resting, and feeling a lot better,” Essery said. “He was alert all night, and he has a good appetite. His doctors and the hospital staff have been fantastic in their care. … There has been an impressive outpouring of support through the social media, and Wade is very appreciative of it. He thanks everybody for thinking of him.” Currently a prospect in the Blue Jackets system, MacLeod played four years for Northeastern. He graduated with 61 goals and 76 assists, and is the Huskies’ all-time leader in games played. The winger has played in 95 games for the Falcons over the past three seasons, according to HockeyDB.com, totaling 15 goals and 28 assists. Photo via Twitter/@wademacleod
