A high school hockey player has passed away as a result of an injury sustained on the ice Thursday night during a game between Brunswick School and St. Luke’s School in Greenwich, Conn., police said.
The incident occurred in a JV game at Hartong Rink, per the team schedule posted online, as Brunswick hosted St. Luke’s, a private, co-educational school located in New Canaan, Conn. The game began at approximately 5 p.m.
According to a statement from the Greenwich Police Department, “a player from the other team fell to the ice,” during the normal course of the game.
“Another player who was near the downed player was unable to stop, and collided with the player who fell,” said Greenwich Capt. Mark Zuccerella.
