Edmonton Oilers forward Colby Cave died Saturday morning after suffering a brain bleed earlier in the week. He was 25.
Cave’s wife, Emily, released a statement on Saturday confirming the news.
Cave was airlifted Tuesday to Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto and had been in a medically induced coma after having emergency surgery to remove a colloid cyst that was causing pressure on his brain.
Emily Cave and other family members were unable to visit Cave in the hospital over the past few days because of COVID-19 rules.
On Wednesday night, Emily Cave posted on Instagram that the family needed a “miracle.”
