Statement from MK Thunder Ice Hockey Club:
During the 3rd period of last night's game against the Raiders, Thunder forward Ross Bowers sustained an extremely serious eye injury as a result of being hit with a high stick, many people in the building didn’t realise the severity of this at the time including his team mates and coaching staff as he got up so quickly from the ice and took himself to the locker room.

Ross was taken to MK Hospital last night, but after initial checks he was sent to Stoke Mandeville to be seen in the specialist eye unit there, he has been in theatre this morning undergoing surgery and we will know more in the next few days about the outcome of that.
Further update from Alastair James Band:
This past weekend Milton Keynes ice hockey stalwart, and all round good guy, Ross Bowers was struck accidentally by a high stick from an opposing player. He has been informed that even after 3 or 4 more surgeries the best he can hope for in that eye will be able to tell if a light in a room is on or off.
A fund raising page has been set up to help out Ross and his family:

Wishing Ross all the best and a speedy recovery.
