Two weeks after collapsing on the ice during practice, Calgary Flames defenceman T.J. Brodie is back on the ice, capping his heroic return to hockey with a goal on Wednesday night.

Against the Buffalo Sabres — his second game since making his return — Brodie absolutely clapped one to open the scoring.

The 29-year-old suffered an apparent seizure on the ice and had to be taken off on a stretcher before being transported to hospital on November 14.

He managed to make a full recovery, allowing him to return to the ice and score his first goal of the season.

The Chatham, Ontario, native now has a goal to add to his eight assists through 23 games in 2019-20.
