The injury occurred during the second half of the game in the second period against Sacred Heart when an inadvertent skate snagged Huss in the neck.

Riley acknowledges his the trainer Rachel Leahy - who acted quick when she noticed the blood dripping from Huss's neck helping save the hockey star's.
"No Doubt," Riley told Fox News when asked if her actions saved Huss's life. "No doubt. The surgeon also told Eric's parents this."
As the man walked nearer to the bench, you could see that there was blood everywhere that was dripping from him," Riley detailed. "And the hand was all the way over his throat.
