craig cunningham leg amputated back on ice

Former Arizona Coyotes forward Craig Cunningham collapsed during a pre-game skate with the AHL’s Tucson Roadrunners over two years ago. He suffered a major heart attack, and had his life saved by medical staff in the arena. He developed an infection because of circulation issues from his heart attack.

Cunningham's lower left leg was amputated on Christmas Eve 2016. As a result, he was forced to retire from professional hockey at 25 years old. He got a job as a scout with the Coyotes organization. Now, he's back on the ice, watch him skate here:



It's a miracle! It's good to see him playing the game he loves again. NHL Trade Rumors staff would like to extend our best wishes to Craig.
