The hockey world has just suffered a tragic loss after it was announced that a professional Swedish-born hockey player, Alexander Reichenberg has passed away at the young age of 31.

Alexander Reichenberg was a professional hockey player from Sweden who spent most of his career playing for Norway. However, it was just announced by the team he was currently playing with, the Lillehammer Ice Hockey Club, announced his passing at 31 years old.

"Alexander Reichenberg played 27 games for Färjetsad in the 2018/2019 season.

Now the Swedish-born hockey player is dead, just 31 years young.

"It is with great sadness that Lillehammer Ice Hockey Club today received the news of Reichenberg's passing"

Reichenberg accumulated 21 goals and 44 points in his 41 games with Lillehammer this season. Outside of time playing for other European teams, his biggest claim to hockey fame, though, came in the 2018 Olympic games, in which he earned 11 goals and 24 points in 50 games.

"Reichenberg had 21 goals, 44 points through 41 games played with Lillehammer in the Norweigian league this season. He also had stints in Czechia, Sweden, and Austria in his career.

With Norway's national team, he played 50 games, including suiting up at the 2018 Olympic Games. He had 11 goals, 24 points in that span."

Though his cause of death remains unknown, this is a devastating matter, and we hope you can join us in wishing the best for his friends and family through these difficult times.
