Maple Leafs’ first-round pick, Stuart Percy, was taken to hospital after going head-first into the boards after colliding with Kitchener Rangers’ Andrew Crescenzi and Ben Thompson.
According to Mississauga Majors head coach James Boyd, Percy had a sprained wrist, stitches on his cheek and suffered whiplash, though X-rays were negative.
Thompson was given a five-minute boarding major and the game misconduct. This is Percy’s third injury of the season and the second time via a hit from behind.
Percy has four goals and 18 assists in 25 games with the Majors this season.
