Another sad day for hockey. 25 year old Montreal Canadiens prospect Blake Geoffrion has decided to retire from the game.
Geoffrion suffered depressed skull fracture on an insane hit by JP Cote during an AHL game against the Syracuse Crunch.
Geoffrion released this statement today to the media:
“After suffering an injury in November and taking time to recover and reflect, I have decided to step away from the game of hockey for the time being.I would like to thank [owner] Geoff Molson, [general manager] Marc Bergevin, the entire Montreal Canadiens organization as well as the Hamilton Bulldogs organization for everything they have done for me. They have been unwavering in their support, professionalism and kindness. I cannot thank them enough.”
Geoffrion played in 55 games with the Montreal Canadiens.
