BLOOMINGTON, Ill. -- Michael Liambas is resuming his hockey career.

The ex-Erie Otters forward signed with the IHL's Bloomington PrairieThunder on Thursday, nearly a month after being suspended from the OHL for the rest of the season and playoffs for a hit that left his opponent with serious head injuries.

Liambis, 20, was assessed a match penalty for boarding after his hit on Ben Fanelli of the Kitchener Rangers in a game Oct. 30.

Fanelli's helmet flew off and he fell unconscious to the ice before he was taken to a local hospital in an ambulance. He was later airlifted to Hamilton General Hospital with skull and facial fractures.

Liambis, who is recovering from a shoulder injury, is expected to join the PrairieThunder for their Dec. 11 game against the Flint Generals. The five-foot-nine, 200-pound winger played eight games with Bloomington last season, recording one assist and 31 penalty minutes.
