AHL linesman Alex Stagnone is recovering after suffering a serious injury Tuesday night.

Stagnone was working the lines for Game 2 of the Calder Cup Playoff series between the Milwaukee Admirals and Iowa Wild.

The linesman found himself tangled up between Iowa’s Colton Beck and one of the Admirals players. He crashed hard into the boards.

“I think I just broke my leg,” Stagnone reportedly told one of the players on the ice.

Medical staff rushed on to the ice to assist the fallen official.

The game continued with three officials – referees Kenny Anderson and Stephen Reneau, with Nate Stanton the lone linesman.

Stagnone was rushed to the hospital, where he underwent successful surgery.  Here’s hoping for a full recovery.
