Linesman’s neck cut in Canada junior hockey game

A hockey linesman’s neck has been slashed during a junior league

game. Witnesses say his neck was gushing blood as he skated off the

ice, and he collapsed before reaching the bench.

Kevin Brown initially was reported in stable condition, but

Woodstock Renegades owner Bill McLeod says he’s been told Brown is

“not doing so well now.”

Team trainers say Brown drifted in and out of consciousness as

he was loaded into an ambulance.

The 25-year-old linesman was cut when two players fell to the

ice late in a game between the Renegades and New Hamburg Firebirds.

The Junior C game was immediately stopped.
