Unspeakable grief in Germany for the loss of the 18-year-old hockey player. Niklas Kauss died at the hospital after being injured in a match last week.
The young ace from Leuven Frankfurt, who is playing in the DEL3 championship, suffered a serious head injury, was immediately transported to the hospital and underwent surgery, but he did not succeed. No matter how much he fought to stay alive, on Thursday (23/12) he succumbed to his injuries.
In a statement, the team states that “he fell in such an unfortunate way that he suffered serious head injuries. He was immediately taken to hospital and operated on. “Doctors exhausted all resources in an effort to save his life.”
At the same time, in her Twitter post, she expresses her support for the family of the deceased.
“Sport is not in the spotlight today. “Our thoughts are with Niklas’s family, relatives and friends,” he wrote.
