Traverse City West High School Titan Hockey shared an encouraging update on Sunday.

Check it out:

"As many of you know Brady was injured during his hockey game on Friday night in Cadillac and is recovering from a spine and neck injury at Helen Devos. Brady had surgery yesterday and will be in a halo for several weeks but is thankfully on his way to a full recovery.

We cannot express how thankful we are for the quick thinking Cadillac and Traverse City parents that immediately acted, performed CPR and saved Brady's life. We would especially like to thank Dr. Mark Munro who we are so thankful for and so thankful that he was at the game leading the effort.

We also thank the wonderful team at the Cadillac hospital that stabilized Brady and took such good care of all of us.

Thank you to Brady's current and former coaches and the Traverse West high school leadership team that have been in constant contact and supported us at both the Cadillac hospital and The Helen Devos hospital.

We cannot express how grateful we are for the overwhelming support we are receiving. Thank you for your continued support and prayers. We all feel the love and support especially Brady."

We wish him the best going forward.
