Player Has Brain Surgery Following College Game Injury

From Rick Couchman at Hockey.com,

Someone is going to die, someday, but luckily for Tom Pohl, he came out on the fortunate end of things.

There was a close-call in Minnesota last night, but it looks like the hockey fraternity dodged a bullet this time, and considering the events, it could have been tragic.

Let’s face it, some collisions are so significant that you can’t help but wonder how people survive. Especially when it involves someone’s skull smashing into the boards.

continued… *Pohl is in intensive care at the Mayo Clinic, but doing well so far
