Amirov’s agent told what the deceased hockey player dreamed of

Former Toronto Maple Leafs general manager Kyle Dubas was ready to fulfill the forward’s dream Rodion Amirov – playing in the NHL, hockey agent Dan Milstein told .

Amirov died Monday at the age of 21. In February 2022, it was reported that a student of Ufa Salavat Yulaev was diagnosed with a brain tumor. In April of that year, he underwent chemotherapy. A year prior, Amirov had signed a rookie contract with NHL club Toronto.

What did Rodion dream about?

– Dubas really wanted to realize this dream – that Rodion plays in the NHL. After all, the Maple Leafs selected him in the 2020 first-round draft at number 15. And when Amirov arrived in Canada last fall, there was a preseason game between Toronto and Ottawa.

Dubas already agreed with the Senators that Rodion needed to get on the ice and play as much as possible. We have already made visas for the parents so that they can also fly to Canada. Unfortunately, he didn’t succeed. He didn’t have enough strength, his coordination wasn’t the same – he couldn’t skate anymore. But you can find photos of Rodion waving to spectators and hockey players in the arena, Milstein told .
