Gwilliam's Season, College Career Done
CHN Staff Report
Michigan Tech senior Malcolm Gwilliam will not return to the Huskies this season, thus ending his college career.
Gwilliam spent three days in the hospital after becoming sick in the Michigan Tech locker room prior to last Sunday's game against Minnesota. According to reports, he felt numbing in his face and there was some fear of a stroke at first, though that turned out not to be the case.
"It's something that cropped up that caught us all off guard," Russell said earlier in the week. "Malcolm is certainly in our thoughts here. That was something we struggled with before the game even started."
Russell said today that Gwilliam would not return this season, but couldn't give a specific diagnosis.
Gwilliam was already a fifth-year senior. He missed the entire 2005-06 season with an injury, and received a medical redshirt. In 117 career games, he has 17 goals and 42 points, including 2-5—7 this year.
The Huskies (2-7-1) have been hit hard by injuries this season. Gwilliam already missed time earlier in the season, and freshman Mikael Lickteig had knee surgery and will miss the entire year. Ricky Doriott also had surgery, but hopes to return. Also currently out are John Schwarz and Bryce Reddick.
