Detroit Red Wings prospect, Marek Tvrdon, who leads the Vancouver Giants of the Western Hockey League in scoring, will miss the remainder of the season due to a medical issue.
"It's a tough day," Vancouver Giants coach Don Hay told the Vancouver Sun. "Marek's health is the most important thing and I've been told he won't be able to play again this season."
The team would not confirm the injury, but the Sun is reporting the issue is a blood clot in the 19-year-old forward's arm. According to the Sun, Tvrdon took the pregame warm-up against the Prince George Cougars, but was seen at the bench talking to a trainer and points to his arm. He was scratched from the lineup and after the game Hay told reporters that Tvrdon had an infection in his arm.
