article imageGoalie leaves team mid-game

An Ontario Hockey League (OHL) goaltender left a playoff game before the end of the 2nd period stating that this past season has "ruined" the game for him.
According to the Toronto Sun, The Windsor Spitfires' backup goalie Dalen Kuchmey started game three of the playoff series against the London Knights when number one goaltender Alex Fotinos fell ill. With London routing Windsor 8-2, Kuchmey ditched his team and left the rink. London ended up winning the game 10-2.
Spitfires head coach Bob Boughner told the press that Kuchmey "quit on our team and he quit on his teammates." Kuchmey justified his actions by stating that his teammates embarrassed him in front of his fans. ”(Boughner) could have put Fotinos in to let the bleeding stop. He knows I wasn’t having a good game and could have recognized it.” Boughner stated that he asked Fotinos if he could play after the Knights went up 4-0 however he was not well enough to take Kuchmey`s spot between the posts. Kuchmey stated he had been contemplating leaving the team for about one month and this game triggered his departure.
The London Knights hold a 3-0 series lead over Windsor. Game three takes place tonight in Windsor. Kuchmey is not expected to be back with the team.
