Former NHL player Nic Kerdiles has tragically died at the age of 29 only hours after he took to Instagram and shared a photo of himself on his motorbike.
Kerdiles, who played for the Anaheim Ducks, died in a motorcycle accident in Nashville at around 3:30 a.m. on Saturday.
According to reports, he crashed into a BMW and was rushed to a local hospital.
Only hours before the accident, Kerdiles had shared a photo of himself on his bike on his Instagram story and captioned his post ‘night rider.’
The Ducks said in a statement: “We’re heartbroken to hear the news about Nic Kerdiles, who died in a motorcycle accident this morning. An Irvine native, Nic became the first player from Orange County to play for the Ducks, in 2017. Our thoughts and deepest sympathies go out to his family and loved ones.”
Kerdiles ended his NHL career with seven appearances in the regular season and the playoffs.
The 29-year-old was once engaged to Savannah Chrisley from the reality TV show ‘Chrisley Knows Best.’ They started dating in November 2017 and got engaged in December 2018 but they never tied the knot.
In September 2020, the reality star announced that they had broken up, writing on Instagram that ‘there’s no hatred between the two of us.
“We have nothing but love, respect, and admiration for one another but it’s time for us to move forward individually.”
Savannah starred in ‘Knows Best’ and ‘Growing Up Chrisley’ but both shows were canceled after her parents, Julie and Todd Chrisley, were sentenced to 7 and twelve years in jail for bank fraud and tax evasion charges.
