As you probably know, yesterday, a young player playing in the OHL for the London Knights unfortunately lost his life. His name was Abakar Kazbekov and he was only 18 years old.

His team announced via an official statement that one of their players has unfortunately passed away. A sudden and tragic death that did not offer at that time any explanation on the causes of it.


The circumstances of this tragedy have not been revealed publicly, but RDS journalist Stéphane Leroux published this:



This tragedy is of infinite sadness and we offer our deepest condolences to his family, friends, teammates and all those who are affected by Abakar's death.

Kazbekov was the 1st overall pick in the 2021 U18 OHL draft and was in uniform the day before yesterday for the Knights.
