BATHURST, New Brunswick - A 16-year-old prospect for a junior hockey team has died while skating during practice.
The team, Acadie-Bathurst Titan, says in a statement that Jordan Boyd collapsed on the ice and was taken to the hospital. The team's medical staff tried to revive him several times while he was on the ice. An autopsy has been ordered.
The club adds that Boyd had a medical evaluation before training camp and didn't appear to have health issues that prevented him from playing.
The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League says Boyd played right wing and had been drafted this year.
