Niagara, ON – The Niagara IceDogs Hockey Club and London Knights Hockey Club are aware of the situation in section 103/104 that occurred during last night’s game.
The individual escorted out of the sections has visited the IceDogs office to provide context to his comments.
The individual, to the best of both teams’ knowledge, attended the game as a neutral spectator.
The individual, with a background in the military, has experience dealing with traumatic medical situations. His comments were made based on experience and fear for Tucker Tynan’s life. It was his intention that his comments get Tucker off the ice quickly, and in an ambulance to the hospital where he could be treated.
This was a very intense situation, and reactions were emotionally driven. Other witnesses in the section have come forward to explain the situation, that matches the individual’s statements. It is our hope that, with more context, the individual’s comments can be understood from a different perspective.
