Oilers’ Colby Cave placed into medically induced coma after suffering brain bleed

The Oilers announced on Tuesday that forward Colby Cave, 25, was placed in a medically induced coma after suffering a brain bleed overnight. He was admitted to the critical care unit at Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto.

“Please keep Colby & his wife Emily in your thoughts & prayers at this time,” the tweet added.

Signed as an undrafted free agent by the Bruins in 2015, Cave was acquired by the Oilers off waivers in January 2019. This past season the Battleford, Sask., native spent 11 games with Edmonton and 44 games with the club’s AHL team — the Bakersfield Condors — posting a combined 24 points.

Sportsnet’s Mark Spector reported on Twitter that Cave’s “condition has no links to COVID-19 — per agent.”
