TORONTO (AP) — The Edmonton Oilers say forward Colby Cave is out of emergency surgery after suffering a brain bleed.
The team posted on Twitter that doctors removed a colloid cyst that was causing pressure on Cave’s brain Tuesday.
He remains in a medically induced coma at Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto.
Cave’s wife, Emily, said earlier on Instagram that doctors were “fighting to keep him alive” in surgery.
“We need a miracle,” Emily Cave wrote.
“Please pray for my husband and best friend.”
The 25-year-old Cave scored one goal in 11 games with Edmonton this season.
