The WHL and Lethbridge Hurricanes released a statement clarifying the Saturday events which near Calgary injured three hockey players, including Pittsburgh Penguins project Jordy Bellerive. According to the release, the injuries were not suffered at a bachelor party but at a gathering hosted by WHL alumnus Tyler Wong for nine friends.

Bellerive, 19, and former WHL player Matt Alfaro, 21, are still being treated at the Calgary hospital and are in stable condition. Current Lethbridge Hurricane Ryan Vandervlis, 20, has been placed in a medically induced coma and is in critical condition. Vandervlis suffered severe burns to his body.

“We are grateful and overwhelmed by the amount of love and support we have received and pray that Ryan will make a full recovery,” read the Vandervlis family statement. The family also stressed alcohol was not a factor in the incident.

Injured? You need a lawyer. Call Joshua R. Lamm.

The Wong family acted quickly and rushed the injured to Calgary Hospital. The Wong family clarified the party was not a bachelor party, as has been reported. The men planned to stay at the Wong residence, then golf and camp the following day.

The Wong family statement expressed prayers and support, “We are earnestly praying for three of Tyler’s closest friends – Ryan, Jordy and Matt – along with their families, for comfort and healing during this time of hurt.”

Further information will be provided as it is made available. The WHL will hold a conference call for journalists, tomorrow afternoon.
