Eden Prairie Hockey Player Hospitalized With Frostbite
GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — The University of North Dakota says sophomore hockey forward Danny Kristo is now listed in fair condition at a St. Paul, Minn., hospital.
The Eden Prairie, Minn., native was taken to Regions Hospital after suffering frostbite to toes on his right foot while walking near campus Sunday evening. The university has not provided any further details about the incident, citing student privacy.
Coach Dave Hakstol tells the Grand Forks Herald that Kristo did not break any team rules.
Kristo ranks second on the team in assists, with 17 in 29 games. The university says he’s out indefinitely.
Kristo is a draft pick of the NHL’s Montreal Canadiens.
