During a game between Traverse City West High School Titan Hockey and the Cadillac Vikings at the Wexford County Civic Center on Friday night, a Titan player suffered a serious injury, reportedly not breathing when paramedics arrived. Fortunately, quick action from bystanders and medical professionals may have saved his life.

"The player had life-threatening injuries, and immediate medical care was started by people watching the game," said emergency medical technician Trevor Alworden, according to NBC 74.

Despite the severity of the situation, there's some positive news. Traverse City West High School Titan Hockey provided an update on Sunday:

«As many of you know Brady was injured during his hockey game on Friday night in Cadillac and is recovering from a spine and neck injury at Helen Devos. Brady had surgery yesterday and will be in a halo for several weeks but is thankfully on his way to a full recovery.

We cannot express how thankful we are for the quick thinking Cadillac and Traverse City parents that immediately acted, performed CPR and saved Brady's life. We would especially like to thank Dr. Mark Munro who we are so thankful for and so thankful that he was at the game leading the effort.

We also thank the wonderful team at the Cadillac hospital that stabilized Brady and took such good care of all of us.

Thank you to Brady's current and former coaches and the Traverse West high school leadership team that have been in constant contact and supported us at both the Cadillac hospital and The Helen Devos hospital.

We cannot express how grateful we are for the overwhelming support we are receiving. Thank you for your continued support and prayers. We all feel the love and support especially Brady.»

Brady's journey to recovery will have the support of the entire hockey community behind him.
