FLOYD Taylor will have to pass a concussion test before he is allowed to take to the ice for the Swindon Wildcats again, following a heavy hit in Wednesday night’s victory over MK Lightning.
Taylor received medical attention on the Link Centre rink in the first period of the 6-1 success after being pushed against the boards, and was subsequently removed from the game.
Head coach Ryan Aldridge, who feared the youngster might have broken his neck on first viewing of the incident, stressed that every precaution will be taking to ensure Taylor is not rushed back too soon with a head injury.
Aldridge told Link Sport: “Losing Floyd made two other guys have to work extra hard. I thought he’d broken his neck when I first saw it, to be honest with you.
“He’s alright. He’s got a sore nose, sore chin and he’s a bit concussed but I’m sure he’ll be fine. Until he passes a concussion test he’s not going to be playing.”
