Vancouver Giants leading scorer Marek Tvrdon admitted he was scared — "really scared" — when told he had a blood clot in his left shoulder that could end his hockey career.

Tvrdon, 19, had a procedure done Monday at Vancouver General Hospital to remove the clot and faces further surgery. He is out for the season. But he said he was relieved to learn he should be able to resume playing next year. Tvrdon, a Slovakian, was drafted by the Detroit Red Wings in the fourth round of the 2011 NHL entry draft. "I was really scared when the doctor say I can maybe never play hockey anymore," Tvrdon said in an interview at the Giants’ training centre in Ladner. "The Detroit Red Wings were scared. My agent was scared. Now I feel better because they tell me I can still play hockey. So that’s a good thing."
