Flyers Prospect Anthony Stolarz Suffers Skate Cut Injury
Flyers top goalie prospect Anthony Stolarz was injured Friday night in a freak accident.
Stolarz, playing in the Ontario Hockey League, was cut by a skate in the first period of the London Knights' game against the Saginaw Spirit.
The blade of a skate of a player sliced the back of Stolarz's leg while the netminder was down in his crease during a scuffle. There was a significant amount of blood from the cut and pressure had to be applied to Stolarz's wound.
Stolarz was taken off the ice on a stretcher.
Photo of the incident can be seen in a screen grab from @JCentifonti. The photo does not show any blood.
Stolarz, who turns 20 in three days, is 21-4-2 with a .925 save percentage and 2.59 goals against average in 29 games for the Knights. He was the back-up goalie for Team USA in the World Junior Championships.
The Flyers drafted Stolarz with the 45th pick in the 2012 draft.
