“It was terrible. At one point I saw a ton of blood coming from nowhere — shares seen goalkeeper and teammate Mikheeva in Toronto Michael Hutchinson, quoted by Спорт24.Ru. – It was much more than just when playing high up the stick or something similar. Hope he’s all right.”
as a result, Mikheyev was taken to a hospital in new Jersey. The head coach of the canadian club Sheldon Keefe admitted that Ilya will have to stay overnight for a more thorough examination and further understanding what to do with such a serious injury.
the Match ended with the victory of “Toronto” with the score 5:4. Mikheev scored one abandoned by the washer.
