NHL player Colby Cave dies after suffering brain bleed


(CNN) – The National Hockey Leagues’s Colby Cave has died. The 25-year-old had suffered a brain bleed.

His wife, Emily Cave, posted the news on Instagram Saturday, hours after his death.

She says family members are in shock.

Cave was a forward for the Edmonton Oilers.

His death comes days after doctors removed a colloid cyst that was putting pressure on his brain. Doctors then put him in a medically induced coma.

Emily Cave says she and Colby’s parents weren’t able to visit him in the hospital due to COVID-19 restrictions.
