We have horrible news to report this week as a young Russian hockey player has passed away at the age of 21.
Georgi Savin, a native of Moscow, is dead after being found in the City of Ryazan a suburb of Moscow.
The 21-year-old former Kontinental Hockey League forward was said to be developing with HC Vityaz at the time of his death. He had 13 KHL games under his belt from the 2022 season.
Another report says the young player took his own life, but those reports have not been confirmed. The report further said Savin jumped off of the 18th floor of a building to his death.
If he did take his own life, no reason has been given as to why he would make that decision suddenly.
This past season saw him split between the VHL with Ryazan-VDV and the NMHL with MHK Ryazan-VDV. In five VHL games, he didn’t record any points, while in six NMHL games, he put up two points.
Our sincere condolences go out to Savin’s family and friends as they deal with these difficult circumstances.
