According to a press release put out by the academy for KHL club AK Bars Kazan, a 16-year-old goaltender by the name of Savva Skotnikov was rushed to hospital earlier this week after suffering a brain aneurysm during a training session.

Skotnikov has reportedly undergone multiple surgeries and remains in hospital as of Friday being supervised by doctors, but no update on his status has been updated as of yet.
Note: the following quote is translated from Russian.
"Our pupil lost consciousness during a training session at a private training camp. The ambulance team quickly arrived at the scene and took the player to the hospital. After all the necessary tests, the hockey player was diagnosed with a ruptured congenital brain aneurysm.

At the moment, Savva has been operated on and is under the supervision of doctors. The best specialists of the country are fighting for the life of a hockey player. Hockey club "Ak Bars" keeps the situation under control and provides comprehensive assistance to the hockey player and his family."

We all hope Savva is able to pull through and make a full recovery after such a scary incident.
