NHL in mourning: Draisaitl colleague dies after bleeding from the brain


Toronto – The world’s best ice hockey league mourns the loss of Colby Cave. Leon Draisaitl’s teammate at the NHL Club Edmonton Oilers died on Saturday at the age of only 25 from the consequences of a cerebral hemorrhage.

“RIP Caver” (rest in peace, Caver), wrote the German international Draisaitl at the weekend on Instagram and added the number 12 of his colleague.

The greatest legend in Oiler’s history and the NHL as a whole condensed the family of the Canadian defender. “Janet and I are so sad to hear about Colby’s death. He was a wonderful player with a bright future. But he was an even better person, »Wayne Gretzky wrote on Twitter. The 59-year-old won four championships in the North American professional league with Edmonton in the 1980s.

Colby Cave was hospitalized in Barrie last Monday and then underwent emergency surgery in Toronto on Tuesday. His wife Emily wrote on Wednesday: “We need a miracle.” After his death, she said goodbye to “my best friend and the love of my life, Colby” with a moving Instagram message. The ice hockey professional leaves behind a small daughter in addition to his wife.

According to his agent Jason Davidson, there is no association between Cave’s cerebral hemorrhage and the spread of the coronavirus. The defender made his debut for the Boston Bruins in the NHL in 2017 and had a total of 67 games, four goals, and five assists in his career in the best league in the world. “The National Hockey League family mourns the loss of Colby Cave, whose life and career, though too short, was inspiring and emblematic of the best in our sport,” said NHL chief Gary Bettman.

The Edmonton Oilers posted a video of the only goal Colby Cave scored for the club this season after his death. In November he met after a remarkable solo attempt against the Pittsburgh Penguins. «We lost one in our family. Colby was an incredible young man, »said Oilers President Ken Holland.
