Kimberley Dynamiters forward Jared Marchi was released from Elk Valley Hospital Tuesday morning and is walking at home, according to head coach Jerry Bancks.

Marchi was held overnight at the Elk Valley Hospital in Fernie Monday night after suffering a back injury during the third period of the Dynamiters 2-1 loss to the Fernie Ghostriders.

Upon further examination Monday night and Tuesday morning, it was determined Marchi suffered ligament and muscle damage to his lower back and pelvis, according to Bancks.

Marchi is expected to make a full recovery, but as of now, there is no timetable for a return to action with the Dynamiters. According to Bancks, the 19-year-old native of Kimberley will undergo further x-rays and assessment Wednesday.

The second-year Nitro was injured Monday night with less than five minutes to play in the third period. After going heavily into the boards in the corner of the offensive zone, Marchi did not get up and was tended to by trainers and players from both teams, paramedics, firefighters, and Bancks.

Marchi wasn’t the only player injured Monday night as defenceman James Jowsey was knocked out of action after suffering a concussion in the third period.

Jowsey sustained the injury after being on the receiving end of a high hit from Ghostriders captain Dylan Robertson.

Robertson was handed a two-minute minor for elbowing on the play.

With the injuries to Marchi and Jowsey, the Dynamiters now have eight regulars on the shelf with injury.

Defenceman Jonas Gordon (upper body, week to week), forward Sawyer Hunt (upper body, week to week), forward Marco Campanella (lower body, four to six weeks), forward Jordan Roy (collar bone, four to six weeks) and defenceman Tristan Pagura (upper body, indefinite) are all unavailable. Forward-turned-defenceman Trevor Van Steinburg (undisclosed) didn’t suit up Monday in Fernie.

The Dynamiters (18-14-1-3, 40 points) next action comes Friday, Jan. 2 in Invermere against the Columbia Valley Rockies (6-23-0-6, 18).
