In the opening moments of Wednesday's Phantoms game against the Binghamton Devils, 2020 first-round pick Tyson Foerster took a hit from Matt Hellickson and took a nasty spill into the boards.
Hellickson received a five-minute major along with a game misconduct for the hit. Foerster left the game and did not return. The hit ultimately left him with a separated collarbone.
This is the second serious injury Foerster has suffered since being drafted, as he fractured his shin back in February. Thankfully, he should be fully recovered by the time next season rolls around.
Foerster finished his first AHL season with 10 goals (tied for the team lead) and seven assists in 24 games.
