Russian Hockey Player Dies After Hit To The Head

from Harrison Mooney of Puck Daddy (Sunday post),

Tragic news out of the Kazakhstan Vyschaya Liga, the highest professional hockey league in Kazakhstan, where Russian forward Dmitri Uchaykin has passed away the morning after being hospitalized due to a hit to the head.

Uchaykin suited up Saturday night for his club, HC Ertis-Pavlodar, in a game versus HC Arystan. Midway through the game, he was knocked unconscious on a high hit from Arystan forward Donatas Kumeliuskas.

He was taken immediately to hospital, lapsing into a coma on the way there. The following morning, he died.
