Spokane Chiefs forward Koby Morrisseau has returned to Spokane after he was hospitalized following a hit on Saturday during a preseason 3-2 loss the the Portland Winterhawks.

During the game, which was played in Everett, Morrisseau was taken off the ice following a check. Tests revealed no broken bones or soft-tissue damage. He’s expected to make a full recovery, the team announced Monday.

Morrisseau, 16, of Grandview, Manitoba, will remain with the team while he recovers. No timeline has been given for his return.

The Chiefs next take the ice for a preseason game Wednesday at 3 p.m. against Everett at Tri-City.
