A scary moment took place in Tucson, Arizona, Saturday night, as former Bruin and current Tucson Roadrunner Craig Cunningham reportedly collapsed on the ice before his team’s American Hockey League game against the Manitoba Moose.
According to the Arizona Daily Star, Cunningham appeared to convulse after hitting the ice and medics performed chest compressions before he was taken away in an ambulance. The game was postponed and no updates on his condition have been given as of 10:50 p.m.
Cunningham played 34 games for the Bruins over two seasons from 2013-2015 and spent parts of four seasons with AHL Providence.
Some of his former teammates took to Twitter to offer their well-wishes.
My prayers are with Craig Cunningham and his family. One of the best guys I’ve met on and off the ice . #prayers
