Rensselaer sophomore winger C.J. Lee was taken off the ice on a stretcher midway through the third period of tonight's (11-26) game against Connecticut. As teammate Patrick Cullen skated in from the right circle and took a shot, Lee went down the slot for the rebound but collided with a UConn player and hit the ice hard.
A next brace was placed on Lee and RPI trainer Chris Thompson and paramedics worked on him.
The game, with UConn leading 4-3, was delayed for 19 as a Houston Field House crowd of 2,403 sat silent.
Lee did not appear to move as he was placed first on a brace board, then on the stretcher but the extent of his injuries was not immediately known.
RPI head coach Seth Appert, serving a one-game suspension, spoke with Lee as the stretcher.
The Engineers tied the score on a Chase Polacek goal 55 seconds (playing time) after Lee's injury.
