Heartbreaking Loss as 14-Year-Old Player Passes Away Mysteriously During Practice

It’s a sad day for the hockey world, as 14-year old hockey player Kirill Kharlamov has passed away following an incident at one of his team’s practices. The youngster will always be remembered for his love of the sport.

In Perm, Russia, Kirill Kharlamov was working out with his team when he unexpectedly passed out on the ice. He complained to his coaches about having trouble breathing, and they had the team physicians perform CPR on him after calling for help.

Kirill was loaded onto the ambulance when it arrived, but during the ambulance ride to the hospital, he lost all vital signs. Shortly after getting to the hospital, he was declared dead.

Please keep Kirill, his family, and his friends in your thoughts today.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
