The hockey world was stunned Tuesday to hear that Edmonton Oiler Colby Cave was in a medically-induced coma following a brain bleed discovered at his home in Toronto. With her husband undergoing surgery to remove a colloid cyst that was causing pressure on his brain, his wife Emily made a heartfelt and heart-wrenching statement on her Instagram account.

"Please wake up. Please wake up. It’s all I can keep asking, 'he’s going to wake up right?,'" Emily said. "We need a miracle. Colby’s parents and myself, got to see him through a window and talk to him with a walkie talkie last night. We are no longer allowed to be in the hospital because Covid-19 rules. We have no idea when we will be allowed to see him again. The nurse has tied his wedding band to his ankle. I am dreaming of being able to touch you, hear your voice, squeeze your hand (3 times), and kiss you again. I love you so much, and my heart is shattered into a million pieces without my best friend. Out of difficulties grows miracles- 1 Peter 5:10."

Cave's agent has stated that his client's illness is in no way related to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is, however, a stark reminder that severe medical problem can happen to anyone, even 25-year-old athletes in top shape.
