Princeton Recruit Neil Doef Seriously Injured at World Junior A Challenge

Matt Christians

Neil Doef, a forward with the Smith Falls Bears who is committed to Princeton, was seriously injured by a check on Sunday in a game against Switzerland while skating for Canada East at the World Junior A Challenge. Doef was strechered off the ice and taken immediately to the hospital, where he underwent emergency surgery. Doef's family has asked for privacy regarding the nature of the injury, but all indications are that it is a very serious injury.

CTV News Ottawa has video of the play in question--it appears Doef went awkwardly into the boards on a legal check--as well as information on donating to help support Doef.
