Kings prospect Garrett Roe, a seventh-round pick in 2008, has had a strong season for St. Cloud State, but suffered a scary injury in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association tournament last night in St. Paul, Minn. Roe had to be taken off the ice on a stretcher after going head-first into the boards while killing a penalty in the third period and suffering an apparent neck injury. The St. Paul Pioneer press reported that Roe “lay writhing in pain for several minutes but was able to move his arms and legs as medical personnel strapped him to a backboard.” The full story can be found here. Roe had a team-high 19 goals in 39 games for St. Cloud State this season as a junior center. St. Cloud State faces North Dakota in the WCHA title game tonight. North Dakota, incidentally, includes center Brett Hextall, son of Kings assistant GM Ron Hextall.
