Toronto – Ice hockey pro Colby Cave, Leon Draisaitl’s teammate at Edmonton Oilers, has died of a brain hemorrhage. The 25-year-old died early in the morning, the von Cave family said via its NHL team from Edmonton.

The Canadian had suffered a cerebral hemorrhage a few days ago and had a colloid cyst removed in an emergency operation.
