Tragically, Toronto Maple Leafs prospect Rodion Amirov has passed away at the age of 21 after a two-year battle with a brain tumor, as announced by his agent Dan Milstein.

Despite the diagnosis, Amirov faced each day with a positive attitude, embracing life and hockey. He emerged from the Yulayev Ufa system in Russia, earning a first-round selection in the 2020 NHL Draft by the Maple Leafs. Despite his promising career, Amirov's health took a downturn in 2021, and he was diagnosed with a brain tumor.

His resilience was evident as he continued to train, aiming to return to play in the 2022-23 season. Rest in Peace, Rodion.
