This is horrible news… 

Over the weekend, we brought you a report on Dyanmo St. Petersburg young captain Timur Faizutdinov after he suffered what has been described as a life threatening injury during a playoff game last week.

Faizutdinov suffered a fracture of the temporal bone, a cerebral hemorrhage and damage to his carotid artery. He tragically died after being hit in the head by the puck during a game, his club and the league said Tuesday.

The 19-year-old defenseman collapsed and was treated on the ice by the team doctor and paramedics before being taken to a hospital in the city of Yaroslavl. He died Tuesday after “doctors fought for Timur’s life over the course of three days.” Eye witness accounts that emerged immediately following the incident suggested that Faizutdinov was struck in the area around his exposed ear and jawline. Doctors believed that he needed a life saving operation to repair his damage artery, however they were unable to perform it at the medical facility he was being held in, and doctor's feared that he would not survive transportation to an appropriate medical facility.

Dynamo announced that the upcoming games in competitions, including the Kontinental Hockey League, will begin with a minute’s silence for Faizutdinov.

This is heartbreaking news. We send our thoughts and prayers to Faizutdinov's family, friends and teammates...
