    Exclamation Hocky Player dies during game

    Rangers prospect dies during game

    1 hour, 41 minutes ago



    NEW YORK (TICKER) New York Rangers prospect Alexei Cherepanov died during a game in his native Russia on Monday night. He was 19.
    The Rangers did not reveal the circumstances of Cherepanov’s death when contacted by PA SportsTicker.

    The New York Post reported that Cherepanov suffered a heart attack and collapsed on the bench during Avangard Omsk’s game against Vityav Chekhov.

    TSN of Canada reported that medical officials attempted to get Cherepanov’s heart beating again. According to the web site, there was no ambulance present at the arena. The report stated that it took between “15 and 20 minutes” to transport Cherepanov from the arena to the hospital.

    Rangers general manager Glen Sather addressed the tragedy in a statement released by the team.


    “We are extremely saddened by the tragic passing of Alexei,” Sather said. “On behalf of the New York Rangers organization, I would like to extend our deepest sympathies to his family. Alexei was an intelligent, energetic young man with tremendous talent and an extremely bright future.”

    The 17th overall selection in the 2007 draft, Cherepanov had been playing with Avangard Omsk of Russia’s Continental Hockey League. He had seven goals and five assists in 12 games for Avangard this season.

    “He was a great kid,” Cherepanov’s agent, Jay Grossman, told TSN. “He had a great smile and was an outstanding player with a great future on and off the ice. It’s both shocking and devastating news for all of us.”

    I couldn't believe it when I heard the news. Alexei was the best young player coming out of Europe. I believe he'd even broken Pavel Bure's points record in the juniors. I was looking forward to seeing him play for the Rangers.

    19 and dead from a heart attack. That just ain't right! RIP.
