The NHL and the entire world have endured a lot of heartache since the pause of the season back in March, and one of thoseheartaches was the unexpected and tragic passing of Colby Cave.
The entire hockey world mourned him at the time, and now, with the imminent return of the NHL season, the Oilers are doing their part to remember him in the most meaningful ways possible.
Today, on their first day of Return to Play camp, their Oilers honoured Cave with a big-screen tribute.
His Oilers teammates also shared some heartfelt words about Colby.
We imagine that we’ll see more touching tributes as the season draws nearer and hockey starts up again, but this is was a beautiful way to start it off.
