NHL defenceman Cory Sarich is recovering in a Calgary hospital after he was injured in a cycling accident on Monday.
Sarich's agent, Tim Hodgson, said in a news release that Sarich was hit by a car while training on his bike in Invermere, B.C. He was airlifted to a hospital in Calgary and is in stable condition with non-life-threatening injuries.
"It's been a rough couple of days and I'm grateful for the support I've been receiving from the medical team here and from family and friends" said Sarich in the release. "My wife Reagan and I appreciate all of the kind words and encouragement."
The timeline for the 35-year-old's recovery is unclear.
Sarich is currently a free agent after spending last season with the Colorado Avalanche where he recorded a goal and nine assists in 54 games.
Over his 15-year NHL career, the Saskatoon native has played with the Avalanche, Calgary Flames and Tampa Bay Lightning.
