Springfield, MA (Sports Network) - Spingfield left winger Wade MacLeod, a minor leaguer from the Columbus Blue Jackets, suffered a seizure on the ice after being hit into the glass.

Adirondack Phantoms defenseman Brandon Manning applied the hit to MacLeod in the second period. The game was suspended.

The Falcons released a statement saying that MacLeod was "stable and alert" following the procedure.

"We would like to thank everyone for the overwhelming show of support for Wade tonight," MacLeod's family said in a statement. "Wade is alert, in good condition, in positive spirits, and is resting comfortably at Baystate Medical Center. He will remain at the hospital while he undergoes tests. We are deeply appreciative of all the caring and kind words we have received from family, friends, and fans."
