After being hospitalized last week with an undisclosed ’virus’, CAS.sk out of Slovakia is now reporting that Canadien’s prospect Martin Reway is currently in the intensive care unit dealing with a possible career-threatening affliction, including inflammation of his heart.
Though it hasn’t been confirmed that Reway will even miss this upcoming season, the seriousness of the illness should take precedence over any hockey aspirations.
Reway is a Czech-born player who was set to make the jump back to North America this season, will now be under close surveillance from Dr. David Mulder, the team physician and the medical team working on him in Slovakia. He originally was selected from the Gatineau Olympiques of the QMJHL in the fourth round of the 2013 draft.
We here at PHR hope for a quick recovery for Reway, and send our thoughts to his friends and family while he’s hospitalized.
