Tragedy has touched the hockey world after an eight-year-old fan died of injuries sustained after being struck by a puck during an FFHG Division 1 game in France.
Near the end of the third period during the game between Dunkirk and Reims, the young fan, Hugo Vermeersch, was hit in the ear with a puck and went into cardiac arrest.
The president of Reims, Dr. Benoit Vrielynck, who is also a surgeon, began performing CPR before firefighters took him from the Patinoire Michel Raffoux Arena to a local hospital.
Sadly, he would succumb to his injuries on Sunday morning.
