LIPTOVSKÝ MIKULÁŠ – The meeting of the 29th round of the Tipos extra league between the home team of MHK 32 Liptovský Mikuláš and HC Slovan Bratislava brought scary moments at the end, when the young goalkeeper of Liptov Patrik Kozel left the ice rink on a stretcher prematurely.

An unpleasant situation occurred in the 53rd minute, when the white defender Daniel Gachulinec fired from the blue and with his blow he unhappily hit the home goalkeeper somewhere in the neck area. The 20-year-old former representative of Slovakia in the under-18 category was still able to hold the puck with his body, but he immediately ordered himself to be on the ice.

The talented Lipták foster child was subsequently called for immediate medical help and his teammates helped him get rid of the goalkeeper’s equipment so that they could place him on a stretcher in a stabilized position. A nice gesture in really difficult moments was also made by domestic fans, who chanted their pet’s name from the stands and at least at a distance expressed their support and gave them strength in recovering from an unpleasant injury.

“He had trouble breathing, he got it in his throat. I can’t say more, but I hope she’ll be fine.” Lipták coach Jančuška said about the terrifying injury at the post-match press conference.

His charges did not follow two close losses with the Slavs (3: 4, 3: 4 pp) and lost to him by a difference of six goals. “It’s very difficult for me to evaluate today’s match. We already had problems with injured players before him and during the duel the defender Ventelä and goalkeeper Kozel were still injured. I hope they will both be fine. “It’s very difficult to play three formations against the four Slavs.” evaluated Jančuška.

The substituting Russian goalkeeper had to return

It was an unfortunate meeting for the Liptovs, as they led the leader of the Slavs to a high of 1: 7 on the home ice. An unpleasantly injured Kozel got into the goal in the 23rd minute of the match, when he replaced the Russian goalkeeper Ivannikova at 0: 3, but after injuring and transporting the young goalkeeper to the hospital he had to return to the Lipták goal in the 53rd minute and managed twice more. collect.
