Philadelphia Flyers 2016 second round pick Wade Allison is having a great freshman year with the Western Michigan Broncos. The forward is tied for second on the team with 29 points (12 goals, 17 assists) in 35 games, by far the best for a freshman on Western Michigan.
Last night the Broncos advanced to the NCHC Frozen Faceoff with an overtime win, but it was a scary moment in the first period that is cause for concern.
Allison was chasing a puck down on the forecheck and nearly was alone in front before he lost an edge and went awkwardly into the end boards.
It was a scary collision for the young forward.
Here’s a slo-mo look.
He stayed down on the ice and left on a stretcher as he was taken to the hospital. Luckily he was discharged from the hospital and returned to the rink to support his teammates.
Update on Wade Allison. He is being discharged from the hospital and is on his way back to Lawson Ice Arena!

Here’s to hoping it was merely a cautionary thing for Allison and he can get back on the ice with his teammates soon.
