Sports log: Ex-NU star has seizure in AHL game


Former Northeastern star Wade MacLeod was rushed to a hospital on Sunday night after suffering a seizure that led to the postponement of the host Springfield Falcons’ AHL game against Adirondack. The Falcons said in a statement that the 26-year-old forward from Coquitlam, British Columbia, was stable and alert. Mac­Leod, who had an assist on Springfield’s lone goal, was checked into the glass by defenseman Brandon Manning with 3:12 left in the second period and Adirondack ahead, 2-1. Manning was assessed a two-minute penalty for boarding. MacLeod collapsed to the ice as he was skating to the bench and was tended to by paramedics and a physician on duty for several minutes before being stabilized on a stretcher. ‘‘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.’’ MacLeod has four goals and seven assists in 20 games this season with the Columbus Blue Jackets’ affiliate.
