Panthers Goalie Prospect Tyler Plante Faints on Bench

It was a scary moment on Friday night at the Rochester Americans hockey game when Tyler Plante stood up on the bench during the second period, didn't look too well and he passed out behind the bench.  The incident occurred in the second period when he was backing up Jacob Markstrom in the Amerks game against the Hamilton Bulldogs.

The only news we know at this time is that he was alert after he was helped into the locker room and before he was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital as a precaution for what Coach Chuck Weber called a fainting spell.  As soon as more information is available we'll provide it.  Brian Foster has been recalled to the Rochester Americans to assist with goaltending duties.

The incident immediately brings to mind Ondrej Pavelec of the Atlanta Thrashers who unexpectedly fainted on the ice this past week.

Unfortunately the Amerks also lost 5-2 against the Bulldogs in what many in attendance called an ugly loss. More this weekend on the start of the Amerks season.
