Fallen Blue Jackets goalie remembered as friend, hero
UPPER ARLINGTON, Ohio (AP) Columbus Blue Jackets goaltender Matiss Kivlenieks was hailed as a friend and hero during a memorial service held Thursday for the player who died on the Fourth of July from an errant fireworks mortar blast.
Authorities have said the firework at a private home northwest of Detroit tilted slightly and started to fire toward people nearby. Kivlenieks was in a hot tub and was trying to move out of the way of the firework when he was struck.
He suffered chest trauma and was pronounced dead at a hospital.MORE
