Forward Cam Darcy of the Florida Everblades exited the round three, game one matchup against the Adirondack Thunder last night at 2:16 of the second period. Adirondack forward Zach Walker slew-footed Darcy, which caused the injury; Walker was not called for a penalty in the play. The game was halted until an ambulance that took the injured Darcy to the hospital returned to the arena; ECHL rules require an ambulance to be present at all games. The team didn’t specifically identify Darcy’s injury, and the status of his return for this series, or the remainder of the playoffs, is undetermined. Walker received a fine and one-game suspension for his unpenalized action.

Coach Brad Ralph activated forwards Josh Ho-Sang, who sat out last night’s game, and Ben Brar, who is making his playoff debut tonight, and defenseman Adrien Bisson. Forwards Reed Lebster, Cam Darcy, and defenseman Cole Moberg were placed on reserve.

Game two is tonight at the Cool Insuring Arena in Glens Falls, N.Y.

I write for and photograph the Florida Everblades for ITR. I am a retiree that has turned my hobby of photography into a business. I currently live in Sarasota, Florida with my wife, Christy, but I'm originally from California. My previous career has taken me all over the US and the world and I definitely enjoy traveling. I've played hockey for over 30 years, learning as an adult, and love the game.

  1. Walker’s injury of Darcy should have drawn more that a fine and one game suspension. It was a real cheap shot with intent to injure. In that Friday night game all night Adirondack was looking to injure or start a fight with the Everblade players rather than play hockey.

  2. The refs in that game should be fired immediately. To not stop play when a player is injured so severe that he is attempting to crawl out of way is irresponsible and should call for dismissal

  3. There’s one thing about playing rough, but to intentionally injure a player should be outlawed. If the League does not take control then the Blades need to injure one of the players.
