Blake Geoffrion Had Surgery On His Head Last Night

from the CP at TSN,

Bulldogs forward Blake Geoffrion left the game and was sent to a hospital after a first-period hit by Crunch defenceman Jean-Philippe Cote.

Geoffrion was caught with his head down by Cote as he drove along the boards. He was bleeding and holding his hands to his face when he skated off the ice to go to the dressing room.

Hamilton coach Sylvain Lefebvre said he believed Geoffrion was injured when he fell to the ice.

"It's a head injury," Lefebvre said. "He's under surgery right now and it's not life threatening."
