a teammate a friend of mine died yesterday. his parents said it was a suicide but my team and i all know it was a drug overdose. he was a good kid and a dedicated hockey player but he would always show up to games on painkillers, we always told him those were dangerous but he never really listened. i'll miss him even if i only new him for half a season. it just makes me think how close to home drugs can strike, even when you and your family don't do them the NCYH (northern colorado youth hockey) association with be honoring him with helmet stickers with his name, and my team is going to get patches for our jerseys. the whole thing just home precious life is and how fortunate i am to be alive and well and skiing and playing hockey. i'm play for ya jake. rest in peace
its really great that your team is supporting his memory and you can help others realize the effects that drugs and ovedoses can have on friends and family. + vibes for you, your friend, and his family.

i think u should go talk to his parents and tell them that he didn't commit suicide but that it was an OD. I would rather have my kid od then commit suicide. i think it would make them feel a lot better know the truth and the he didn't want to kill him self.
