Update: Yes, wrong blog, I know.
Awful news from Yahoo Sports' Sunaya Sapurji:
The Acadie-Bathurst Titan have confirmed the news:
Here's their report:
It is with deep regret that the Acadie-Bathurst Titan announces the death of one of its young prospects, Jordan Boyd. The 16 year-old was skating during an individual training session when he suffered a discomfort and collapsed on the ice. The Acadie-Bathurst Titan medical team tried to revive him several times. The young player was transported to hospital where his death was confirmed by a doctor.
The Ligue was informed of the incident and is working in collaboration with the team to bring the necessary support to the parents and players in this difficult time. Jordan Boyd had had a complete medical evaluation prior to the camp and didn't seem to have any medical problems that prevented him from participating. We are waiting for the hospital's autopsy to determine the exact cause of death. We offer our deepest condolences to his loved ones.
In order to protect his family's privacy, the organization will not emit any further comments on this case for the moment.
TSN's Bob McKenzie sums things up:

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related.

I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
