Teen dies playing hockey
Alex CORRANCE died while playing in a minor hockey tournament.
By Lois KALCHMAN, Debra BLACK, Toronto Star with files from John GODDARD
It was the beginning of what was supposed to be an action-packed AAA hockey tournament, but the game ended in tragedy yesterday with the death of a 17-year-old hockey player.
Alex CORRANCE -- the only child of Mississauga Rebels Midget AAA team manager Alan CORRANCE -- died of an apparent heart attack.
The teen's father had been on the bench at Ice Sports Scarborough when his son collapsed. He had raced out on the ice to help, not realizing the fallen player was his flesh and blood.
The teen, a 6-foot-2, 190-pound defenceman for the Rebels, had just come out from behind the net, his shorthanded team killing a penalty early in the game as they played against archrivals, the Mississauga Ice Dogs.
CORRANCE -- considered one of the healthiest players on the team skated to the top of the faceoff circle.
With the Ice Dogs scoring a tying goal, the Grade 12 student at Oakville Trafalgar High School suddenly buckled and dropped to the ice.
A referee skated past and then cut back around, asking if he was all right.
Two trainers quickly raced onto the ice and tried to save his life, using a defibrillator. An Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer and some off-duty firefighters and nurses also joined them. Somebody called 911. But there was no pulse.
Firefighters and ambulance personnel arrived and took over, beginning cardio-pulmonary resuscitation and rushing him to Markham Stouffville Hospital, to no avail. His father, who loved hockey and spent endless hours managing teams in Oakville, later told team officials his son "went down doing something he absolutely loved doing."
Alan CORRANCE said he was dreading going home to tell Alex's grandparents the news.
When contacted by the Star, a person at the CORRANCE home in Oakville said: "We're not interested in speaking to anyone right now."
Rebels coach Victor CRISCUOLO was still trying last night to piece together what happened earlier in the day as his team participated in its first game of the 2006 Showcase Major Midget Prospect Tournament, run by the Wexford Raiders.
"I'm still numb, still in shock," he said. "He basically collapsed on the ice. There was no contact… no one touched him, nothing.
"You wake up in the morning, the day after Christmas expecting to play in a tournament and to have fun. Our thoughts and prayers of the whole team all go towards the CORRANCE family.
"Alex was a tremendous kid, just a great kid. He was always upbeat, an absolutely beautiful person. He was a good hockey player but a better person. He was always a pleasure to be around."
CRISCUOLO said Alex spent the summer trying to prepare for the jump to tier two Junior A hockey, but he was a late cut.
"I knew the kid and knew of the dad," he said recollecting the call in late September to take Alex on his Rebels team.
The Scarborough midget tournament -- one of dozens running across the Greater Toronto Area during the Christmas break -- was a big event, with 20 teams from across southern Ontario, Ottawa, Kingston and Detroit competing over three days.
Now, CRISCUOLO is worried about the impact Alex's death will have on his team and is seeking grief counselling for his players through the Greater Toronto Hockey League or the Ontario Hockey Federation.
"It's a cruel life -- it's one of those lessons in life," CRISCUOLO said.
Alex's teammates will miss "just seeing him smile or listening to his iPod before the game."
Bart MARCOLINI, general manager of the Rebels, was also stunned by yesterday's tragedy. "You feel badly if someone gets a concussion or breaks an arm or leg but this, this is terrible. He was probably one of the healthiest on the team.
"You'd think there would be signs, but there weren't. I've been in hockey for 66 years and nothing like this has ever happened before."
Despite the sudden death, the tournament is scheduled to continue minus the Mississauga Rebels. General manager MARCOLINI has pulled the team from the tournament, saying he wouldn't expect the teenaged players to continue.
The Ice Dogs also decided to forgo playing the team's other game yesterday. Some of their players knew CORRANCE and were also in shock over his death, said the Rebels' coach. Tournament director Mike BRADLEY said he assumed the Ice Dogs would withdraw as well.
Greater Toronto Hockey League officials were stunned by the tragic turn of events. Greater Toronto Hockey League president John GARDNER said he couldn't think of another instance of something like this happening on ice during the three decades he has been with the league.
"What a tremendous shock it must be for everyone and during Christmas," he said.
"There were no signs of any problem… nothing."
An autopsy is scheduled for today.
