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.
