The sad news came on April 7, when Cave was taken to the hospital and put into an artificial coma. That evening he underwent an emergency operation to remove a colloid cyst, which pressed on the brain.
It all started on April 6th: Cave began to worry about a headache. “I spoke with Colby’s wife this morning. She told me about last night, how his head hurt, and then they took him to a hospital in Ontario, where they determined a brain hemorrhage. After that, he was transferred to a hospital in Toronto. Our thoughts and prayers with Colby and Emily. We all hope for good news, ”said Ken Holland, club’s general manager.
Death at 25
Cave made his debut in the NHL in the 2017/2018 season for Boston, then through the rejection draft passed to Edmonton. Most of the time he played in the AHL; in all, during his career he played in the NHL 67 matches, in which he scored 9 (4 + 5) points. He did not yet have a stable place in Edmonton, but the club only spoke positively of him. “He is a checker. I never complained if I didn’t make it or played for six minutes per game. He did not complain when he was sent to the AHL. He simply played, understood his role and accepted it. He is a true professional, he always went into power struggle, no matter how many minutes he was given. These players need a team. Of course, I want you to have all the stars, but this is impossible. You need players like Colby, ”Holland said.
Doctors hoped that in an artificial coma the hockey player’s brain could recover, but on April 11 his heart stopped. “My best friend, the love of my life. My heart is broken.
It’s impossible to bear the pain brought by the thought that I will never be able to see you or touch you again. You will forever remain my man, my hero, the best that has happened to me in life. I did not think that I would become a widow until the first anniversary of our wedding.
