On Friday, November 18th while playing a game against the New Jersey Rockets, forward Mick Deaver collided with a player on the opposing team and suffered a severe neck injury. Mick was taken to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, NJ, where he has undergone multiple surgeries. He will begin an intensive physical therapy regimen at the hospital.
The Bandits family is asking that your thoughts and prayers be with the entire Deaver family in this time of need. If anyone would like to help defer some of Mick's medical costs please donate to his cause at gofundme.com/deavermedicalfund.
The EHL Elite game on Sunday, 12/11@ 4:40PM the Bandits against the NH Monarchs at the Bridgewater Ice Arena will be a fundraiser game. All proceeds will go directly to the Deaver family to help with medical bills. During the game will be a silent auction for a Boston Bruins jersey, autographed by the entire team specifically for Mick's fundraiser. There will also be a 50/50 raffle and additional raffle items including Boston University jerseys & gift certificates. Please help us spread the word.
