The Quad-City Mallards game on Friday was postponed after Tulsa Oilers coach Rob Murray required medical aid and was taken off the ice on a stretcher.
“I am with Coach Murray in the ambulance,” tweeted John Peterson, Oilers Vice President of Communications. “He’s alert and communicating. On our way to the hospital. Prayers needed.”
The event happened with 12:08 remaining in the second period.
The ECHL will determine if the game will be continued at a later date or is an outright cancellation.
