Waterloo Black Hawks defenseman Victor Newell was released from University Hospitals in Iowa City Thursday morning, the team announced.
The Black Hawks would like to thank all of the fans, including those
of several other USHL teams, who called to express their concern for
Victor after he was involved in a single-vehicle accident Monday
Newell is expected to make a full recovery from his injuries. It
will be several weeks before the Hawks will be able to make definitive
statements about his availability to return to the lineup.
The 19-year-old from Burnaby, British Columbia skated in 22 games for
Waterloo after being acquired from the Omaha Lancers. Newell was
credited with four goals, eight assists, and a +4 plus/minus rating in
that time. He has been recruited by Harvard University.
