Montreal defenseman question...

A buddy of mine (huge Hab fan) at school told me about a Montrel defenseman in the early 90s, who was struck by an Al MacInnis slapshot in the throat and didn't play again. Can someone tell me who this is and if he did indeed never play again, or is my buddy just making this up?

Help would be appreciated, thanks.

Trent Mcleary. Never played again. Lucky he lived. Is now a scout for the Habs.

Yes, that was a scary incident for sure. I really thought he was going to die.

Yeah it happenned to McCleary.

But he was a forward not a d-man, He got hit by Chris Therien not Al Macinnis, and it happened in 2000 not the early 90's.

I think he exagerated the story to make it really impressive. It was already rather impressive when it happened : Trent Mcleary jumped on the ice to block a shot but he recieved it directly in the throat and, if I remember correctly, when he was walking towards the locker room he felt unconscious for something like 20 seconds.

It was freaking, I really didn't think he was gonna make it...

Nothing really happened to Savage. He sucked from the beginning...














He almost had a broken neck because of a clean hit by Ian Laperriere in 2001.

He had tracheal surgery to repair his voice box...

Dave Manson suffered something similar, and had a rasp to his voice from it... I remember it well, because it was documented that he was going to wait for retirement to get his voice box repaired... (Now that he's retired, I wonder if he actually went and did it)

In 1993-94, he played for the Thunder Bay Senators. Here are his stats for his stint in the Lakehead.

1993-94 Thunder-Bay Senators CoHL 51gp 23g 17a 40pts 123pim

That was the year I moved from TBay to Yellowknife

Holly crap, I love seeing this much representation from Thunder Bay, on this board!!!

I watched EVERY game Trent McCleary played in Thunder Bay (had season tixs...never missed a game), and he definately had the size/speed combo that made ya think that he could maybe make the NHL, but even at that level you could tell he would never be a scorer. I was really happy to see him make the NHL and even happier when the habs signed him.

Was sad that day his career ended. If Trent would of learn the proper way of blocking a shot, that never would of happen. Craig Ludwig could of blocked the same shot from the same spot a million times and got up and continued to play. Reminded me of Audette's arm injury, the similiarities being that if the play was execute properly, the injury wouldn't have occured.
