    The NY Rangers 1st round pick just died.

    Cherepanov collapses on bench during game, dies at 19

    ESPN.com news services

    Updated: October 13, 2008, 4:21 PM ET



    New York Rangers prospect Alexei Cherepanov collapsed on the bench during a game Monday night in Russia and died later. He was 19.

    "We are extremely saddened by the tragic passing of Alexei," Rangers president and general manager Glen Sather said in a statement. "On behalf of the New York Rangers organization, I would like to extend our deepest sympathies to his family. Alexei was an intelligent, energetic young man, with tremendous talent and an extremely bright future."

    Cherepanov was the Rangers' first-round pick, 17th overall, in the 2007 draft.

    Avangard Omsk head coach Wayne Fleming said Cherepanov collapsed during the third period Monday night. Fleming said he did not see anything on the ice that could have contributed to the collapse and said medical personnel tried to get Cherepanov's heart beating again after it had stopped.

    "He was a great kid," Cherepanov's agent, Jay Grossman, told TSN of Canada. "He had a great smile and was an outstanding player with a great future on and off the ice. It's both shocking and devastating news for all of us."

    Cherepanov had seven goals and five assists in 14 games with Avangard Omsk this season. In 106 career games with Avangard Omsk, he had 40 goals and 29 assists, as well as 61 penalty minutes.

    Heart attack at 19? And no ambulance?

    Rangers' prospect Cherepanov dies in Russia
    by Larry Brooks, New York Post

    Nineteen-year-old Alexei Cherepanov, the Rangers' first-round selection in the 2007 Entry Draft, died today in Moscow while playing a game for Omsk of the KHL, The New York Post has learned.

    According to initial reports, Cherepanov collapsed on the bench after suffering a heart attack and was unable to be resuscitated. There was apparently no ambulance on hand at the rink at the time of Cherepanov's collapse as Omsk played Vityav Chekhov in the Moscow Region. Resuscitation efforts were conducted in the parking lot.

    Too bad they didn't have a defibrillator at the arena. It's becoming the norm to have nowadays at schools, stadiums, etc.

    Terribly sad.

    Why don't we ever learn more about these deaths? Seems likely that it's caused by the intense physical activity, some congenital defect/weakness of the heart AND substance abuse, most likely pseudoephedrine (Sudafed) or some other stimulant. That last part is always left out.

    Cherepanov collapsed during a KHL game against Chekhov Vityaz following an accidental collision with teammate Jaromir Jagr and was rushed to an intensive care unit.[7] The ambulance that is normally at all games had already departed and had to be called back, taking approximately 15-20 minutes to get him to a hospital. He died later that day from commotio cordis, a sudden disturbance of heart rhythm.

    Interesting... from Wikipedia:

    Commotio cordis (from Latin commotion of the heart - a functional effect of mechanical stimulation in the absence of structural damage, as opposed to myocardial contusion which involves tissue damage) is a sudden disturbance of heart rhythm observed mostly in young people during participation in sports. It occurs as the result of a blunt, non-penetrating impact to the precordial region, often caused by impact of a ball, a bat or other projectile. The impact is transmitted to the heart muscle, and depending on the precise timing in relation to the cardiac cycle, it may affect the heart's electrical activity, causing an arrhythmia, such as an ectopic beat, ventricular tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation. Pre-existing conditions, such as undetected electrical or structural abnormalities in the heart of these individuals, have been speculated to render individuals more vulnerable, but this view is not currently corroborated by hard evidence. The phenomenon was confirmed experimentally in the 1930s, with research in anaesthetized rabbits, cats and dogs.[1]

    damn, that's crazy sounding. Basically it says if you have an impact of any sort your electrical impulses can malfunction. So basically if you are at risk you don't need to be playing contact sports, especially Hockey with all the checking.
    But how are you supposed to check a young person if it doesn't have any symptoms, are you supposed to throw objects at them or tackle them and see if it throws off their electrical system.
    That's got to be a rare thing.

    How crazy is it that's all it takes to kick start a heart attack?
