After a police investigation it was revealed that Kazbekov the 18 year-old Russian born player and Knights 2021 first round pick had fallen to his death.

Kazbekov was in the lineup just the night before when the Knights beat the Owen Sound Attack 5-2 at Budweiser Gardens, so to hear this news was even more shocking.
