MOSCOW -- A Russian hockey player has died after being hit in the head by the puck during a game, his club and the league said Tuesday. He was 19. Defenseman Timur Faizutdinov was playing for Dynamo St. Petersburg's junior team in a playoff game against Loko Yaroslavl on Friday when he was struck by a puck hit from the neutral zone.
Every hockey parent's worst nightmare. May Timur's soul rest in peace.
