In tragic news, a high school hockey player has just passed away after a tragic car accident, as announced by their team yesterday.

17-Year-Old High School Hockey Player Passes Away After Car Accident

It's a sad day when anyone passes away, and even worse when someone has their life taken far too soon. Yesterday, a Minnesota High School announced that 17-year-old Mikayla McCarvel passed away after a tragic car accident a few weeks ago.

With heavy hearts and profound sadness we share that our teammate, Mikayla McCarvel, passed away last night. Please keep her family, friends, teammates, coaches and all that knew her in your prayers.

McCarvel had played in 42 games for her High School Hockey team. She was involved in a tragic car accident and succumbed to the traumatic brain injury that she suffered as a result of the two-vehicle accident.

McCarvel's family has asked that any donation be made through planting a tree in Mikayla's honour. You can do so by visiting this website, here.

Our thoughts are with Mikayla's family, loved ones, teammates and coaches during this difficult time.
