CALGARY — The Calgary Flames say defenceman TJ Brodie has been taken to hospital for evaluation after collapsing during a team practice.
Practice was halted when Brodie fell to the ice and was convulsing during a skate earlier today. The defenceman was taken off the ice on a stretcher.
"TJ Brodie experienced an episode on ice at practice today," the Flames said in a statement. "He is alert and responsive and has been transported to local area hospital for evaluation. We will provide a further update when available."
Brodie is in his ninth season with the Flames. The native of Chatham, Ont., has eight assists in 21 games this season.
