ESTEVAN - The Nipawin Hawks are expressing their thanks to people in Estevan after a “scary situation” that occurred during Friday night’s game between the Estevan Bruins and the Hawks.

Hawks’ forward Rylan Lefebvre was inadvertently cut in the arm by a skate while killing a penalty in the third period of the Bruins’ 3-2 overtime victory. He immediately left the ice with assistance and paramedics were asked to provide assistance.  

“We are ecstatic to report Rylan is okay and is on the mend,” the Hawks said in a press release.

The Hawks organization is thankful for the Bruins’ training staff, the Estevan Emergency Medical Services, the staff at St. Joseph’s Hospital and the entire Bruins’ organization for their assistance with team athletic therapist Emma Galloway and the Hawks’ team.

“We’re competitors on the ice, but when instances come about in a fast-paced game, we’re all on the same team,” the Hawks said.
