The Québec Remparts received some scary news after their overtime win on Wednesday night.
Pugilist Mikaël Robidoux was taken to the Cape Breton Regional Hospital where he had his spleen removed during an emergency surgery.
Robidoux left Wednesday’s contest after taking a few harmless-looking hits. The Red Devils’ winger was then taken to the local hospital at the behest of team therapist Steve Bélanger and the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles’ team doctor.
According to Jean-Nicholas Patoine of Le Soleil, Robidoux will spend the next few days in Sydney, NS and will be joined by his father who flew in on Thursday.
Due to the severity of the injury, it appears Robidoux’s season is done. The La Prairie, PQ native has 16 points and 80 penalty minutes in 40 games this season.
The Remparts knocked off the host Screaming Eagles 3-2 in overtime in their first game of a three-game Maritimes road trip.
