Local CBJ prospect makes shocking discovery in bathroom

A local Columbus Blue Jackets prospect made a shocking discovery after months of physical discomfort hindered his performance on the ice this winter.

Powell native Carson Meyer was suffering from loss of appetite, weight loss, and lack of energy during his hockey season at Miami University, reports Fox News.

Then in February when in the bathroom, a 25-inch, orange-colored tapeworm came out of him.

“Freaking out,” Meyer called his mom who tried to keep calm while instructing him to get in touch with his trainer.

According to Fox News, doctors are convinced his tapeworm was a diphyllobothrium latum, which comes from eating undercooked fish.

Meyer hopes to transfer from Miami to Ohio State University to play hockey.

If the NCAA doesn’t allow him to participate in the 2018-19 season, Meyer may be forced to blame Miami for the parasite.

The Blue Jackets drafted Meyer in the sixth round of the 2017 NHL Draft.
