On Tuesday, the Edmonton Oilers announced some very sad news as forward Colby Cave suffered a brain bleed overnight and is in a medically-induced coma. The team said that the 25-year-old Cave was admitted to the critical care unit at Toronto’s Sunnybrook Hospital.

Cave made his NHL debut in the 2017-18 season with the Boston Bruins. From there, he spent time with the Bruins’ AHL team before the Oilers claimed him in 2019. While with the Oilers, Cave scored three goals and one assist in 44 games as he spent most of his 2019-20 season with the AHL’s Bakersfield Condors. At the Condors, Cave scored 11 goals and 12 assists in 44 games with the Oilers’ affiliate.

Teams throughout the NHL, AHL, and Canada along with fans have been sending their well wishes to Cave and his wife as they go through an incredibly scary time and everyone is hoping he pulls through.
