The New England hockey community is coming together to support A.J. Quetta, a Bishop Feehan High School senior who suffered a serious head injury during a Tuesday night game at Olympia Ice Center in West Springfield, Mass.
Quetta, who is from North Providence, R.I., crashed headfirst into the corner boards during the first half of the Shamrocks’ game against Pope Francis High School. According to the Boston Globe, he was taken off the ice on a stretcher and transported to Baystate Medical Center in Springfield.
“It is a significant injury,” said Tim Sullivan, the president of Bishop Feehan, which is located in Attleboro, Mass. “We are all praying for A.J., his family, and his doctors.”
The two teams kneeled at center ice for a joint prayer following the game.
