The medical staff is optimistic about a full recovery but the 38-year-old Graham has a long recovery period ahead.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to support Graham and his family. As of Sunday afternoon, more than $44,000 has been raised in only a couple days.

Graham graduated from RPI in 2003 and later played professionally for a few seasons. He's been an assistant coach on the men's hockey staff since the 2010-11 season.
