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:

They have been unwavering in their support, professionalism and kindness. I cannot thank them enough.”

Geoffrion played in 55 games with the Montreal Canadiens.
