Joe Foley was working in the Bruins penalty area when a section of the glass fell on him. The match was delayed by about seven minutes. The incident occurred with 5:07 remaining in the second period. NHL spokesman John Dellapina said Foley was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital for observation.
“We have heard that everything is going well and he will be fine,” said Bruins star David Pastrnak.
The glass dropped on Foley, who is a commercial coordinator, separated the Bruins’ penalty area from the crowd. The game is resumed with a police officer in the stands to maintain a barrier.
According to ESPNfans were banging on the glass causing it to come off and fall on Foley.
Foley appeared to have passed out when the glass hit him.
“Our thoughts are with the NHL off-ice officer injured. We are sending him our best wishes,” the Bruins said in a Twitter statement.
