Default Hockey Related Deaths.

This is more of a question from me than a trivia question..but..
Did anyone every die in a hockey game from an injury? I was watching something on ESPN about a goalie that almost died from a skate to the neck, but I've never heard of anyone actually dying in a game.

I can't remember anyone dying during an NHL game but there have been some deaths that I can remember. There was a 17 year old kid that just collapsed during an exhibition game, also there was an ex Leaf who died during a charity game when he stepped on an puck, fell and hit his head off the ice during the pre game warm-up. Then there was a South Korean player that died when he was hit in the chest with a puck. That's all I can remember hearing about, there may be more

I don't think anyone has actually died on the ice, but Bill Masterson died a few days after hitting his head on the ice during a game against the Seals. Of course, he has a trophy named after him, awarded to "the player that best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey".

The goalies name is Clint Malarchuk. He played for Washington. I know someone died from a puck to the throat. Thats what got the neckgaurds going in minor hockey. I dont know if the throat one was in the NHL though.

I thought Malarchuk was with the Sabres when the accident happened. And let us not foget Brittany Cecil, the young girl hit by a puck at a Columbus Blue jackets game and later died.

I know that he played for Buffalo during the time of his injury, but I think he played for Washington later in his career.

Morenz died of a heart attack, and the only thing THAT was a complication of was the constant drinking that he and teammates spent all the month doing following his injury.

Video of Malarchuk's accident. Download at your own will...I can understand if the mods want to remove this.
