There's been a significant amount of confusion regarding some Tweets made by former Colorado Avalanche defenseman Cory Sarich today, so the Avalanche issued a summary of Sarich's condition:
Sarich Recovering Following Cycling Accident
15-season NHL veteran planning to return
Veteran NHL defenceman Cory Sarich was injured in a cycling accident while training in Invermere, BC, on the morning of Monday, July 21, 2014. Sarich was struck by a motor vehicle and was airlifted to a hospital in Calgary, AB. He is in stable condition and his injuries are not considered life-threatening. The full extent of his injuries and the timeline for his recovery and return to the NHL is unclear.
“It’s been a rough couple of days and I’m grateful for the support I’ve been receiving from the medical team here and from family and friends” said Sarich. “My wife Reagan and I appreciate all of the kind words and encouragement.”
Sarich, 35, has spent parts of 15 seasons in the NHL and has played 969 career games in the NHL – the majority with the Calgary Flames and Tampa Bay Lightning. He spent the 2013-14 season with the Colorado Avalanche and is currently an unrestricted free agent.
Sarich expects to make a full recovery and to resume his NHL career. He will not be available for further comment, but will provide more information, when available, via his twitter account @sarchy06.
