Edmonton Oilers player Colby Cave has died after being put into a medically induced coma due to a brain bleed at the beginning of the week.

Cave's wife released a statement: “I (Emily, Cave’s wife) and both our families are in shock but know our Colby was loved dearly by us, his family and friends, the entire hockey community, and many more. We thank everyone for their prayers during this difficult time.”

According to City News, Cave's agent said that the situation was unrelated to the coronavirus outbreak.

"We wanted to express our deepest condolences to the family and friends after the passing of our teammate Colby Cave earlier this morning. Colby was a terrific teammate with great character, admired and liked everywhere he played. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife Emily, his family and friends at this very difficult time," The Edmonton Oilers' official statement said.

Cave, a Saskatchewan native, was only 25 years old.
