After suffering numerous strokes, Cormick Scanlan passed away on Sunday evening “peacefully” and “surrounded by family,” according to a post published by the St. Paul Capitals Hockey Association.

According to a statement made by a youth hockey club that the St. Paul teenager had previously played for, he passed away on Christmas Day after suffering from a stroke earlier this month.

St. Paul Capitals Hockey Association issued the following statement:

Our hockey community has lost a great young man. Cormick Scanlan passed away peacefully last night surrounded by family.

Cormick suffered a stroke on December 6th. Angiogram revealed that he had a rare condition called moyamoya disease.

He had bypass surgery on Thursday the 15th to repair the left side carotid artery with blood vessels from his head. Sadly, he suffered additional strokes thereafter.

Cormick played with the Capitals through last season. Our strength is with the Scanlans and all who loved Cormick.

GoFundMe page created to raise money for Cormick’s family following his first stroke has raised nearly $19,000 as of Tuesday morning.
