We have some sad news to share from a men's amateur league over in Russia.

Recently, as a pair of teams were warming up ahead of their game, a 62-year-old goaltender collapsed and tragically passed away.

"What is the cause of death? We don't yet have all the information ourselves. I personally wasn't here at the game. It happened late. Goalkeeper Nikolai Kuznetsov was 62 years old. We are in touch with the hockey player's relatives. We will help them in everything." Director of SHL (Russian amateur league) Sergei Stolyarov

Before the season began, the members of the Russian amateur league decided against having ambulances at games, Stolyarov said. The players decided that because it would make playing in the league more expensive.

The thoughts of everyone here at Canucks Daily are with the family, friends and teammates of the goaltender who passed away.
