UAA Goalie Career Appears Over

CHN Staff Report

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — The eye injury suffered by Alaska-Anchorage backup goaltender Matthew Gordon appears to be career ending, according to the Anchorage Daily News.

Gordon, a freshman from Vancouver, played one game this season. He was hit by a puck while sitting on the bench during last Saturday's loss to Colorado College. He left the rink under his own power, but needed several stitches to close the cut.

Despite the looks of the injury, Gordon had said he felt fine. But according to the Daily News, a medical procedure Tuesday uncovered severe damage that has left Gordon bed-ridden.

Besides No. 1 Jon Olthuis, the only other goaltender on the roster is walk-on freshman Aaron Mayo. The Seawolves will be in the hunt for a No. 3 goaltender.
