Hockey player Rodion Amirov constantly communicated with players “Salavat Yulayev” and the captain of the Ufa team Grigori Panin offered the striker to live in his apartment in Moscow, Amirov’s agent Dan Milstein told .

Amirov died Monday at the age of 21. In February 2022, it was reported that a student of Salavat Yulaev was diagnosed with a brain tumor. In April of that year, he underwent chemotherapy.

– I know that “Toronto” and “Salavat Yulaev” fought for Amirov, provided assistance.

— Yes, the clubs did what they could. As much as possible to make him feel comfortable. Ufa gave Rodion a contract for the following season, knowing full well that he would never play hockey again. Until the very last second he was a member of the team, feeling like a real hockey player.

When I got to Rodion, I told him all the latest news, gossip from the hockey world, who signed what contract, what was going on. He was completely on the subject and lived with this news.

When the NHL organized campaigns against cancer, all Russian hockey players wrote on a purple sheet: “Amirov”. The AHL team in Toronto, where the guys don’t make a lot of money, pitched in and gave back six thousand dollars.

Many guys from Ufa came to see him. He talked all the time with Salavat Yulaev players. Rodion lived in a rented apartment in the capital. His parents tried to entertain him by taking him to various restaurants in Moscow where he met friends. And when Captain Grisha Panin came to see him, he offered Rodion his apartment to live in.

Many in the hockey world, in the NHL, were constantly calling, asking questions, interested and supporting in any way they could, as best they could, Milstein told .

Amirov played 79 KHL games for Salavat Yulaev, scoring 18 points (10+8).
