Dubuque hockey player out of hospital

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) — A Dubuque junior hockey league player has been released from the hospital after he struck his head on the ice during a game between the Dubuque Fighting Saints and the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders.

KGAN-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1gcpSmM ) 18-year-old Dylan Chanter is home. Witnesses say Chanter went into convulsions after hitting his head in the second period of the game. Trainers worked with him until an ambulance crew could take him to the hospital. He was alert when he left the Cedar Rapids Ice arena.

On his Twitter account Saturday night, Chanter sent a message to his family and friends that he was awake and OK.

The United States Hockey League says the teams agreed to suspend the game, which will be rescheduled later.
