Rodionov played ten matches for Dynamo this year. In October he was called to the national team under 17 years of age and on November 5 he started in a friendly match against the Czech Republic in Turnov and was 4: 1 in the victory of the Russian youths.
In Sunday’s MHL league match against CSKA Moscow, however, Rodionov collapsed after returning from the ice.
“He was given first aid and then taken to hospital, where he underwent emergency surgery. He is now in artificial sleep. She is in the care of the best doctors in Moscow, “said the club. “Players, the implementation team and management wish for a speedy recovery.”
A week later, however, the club issued a sad message: “We express our deepest condolences to Valentin’s parents, close to the entire hockey community,” the Russian Hockey Association’s Instagram said, killing the young player. The club did not disclose the cause of death.
