Former NHL player Nic Kerdiles, unfortunately, died in the early hours of Saturday morning following a motorcycle accident in Nashville at the age of 29.
His former fiancée, Savannah Chrisley has now taken to Instagram to comment on the tragic news and post a gut-wrenching tribute to her former partner.
Along with a boomerang of them sharing a kiss, she wrote: “I’m still hoping you respond to my text.”
Chrisley then shared another photo of the two of them holding hands on a beach, while the song, Dancing in the Sky played.
She added: “Heaven gained the most beautiful angel today. I miss you and I love you…I’ll forever save our messages of ‘I love you’….”
Ending the stories, she then uploaded a final picture of the pair smiling as they held hands running down the beach.
She concluded: “I’ll forever save our last messages of ‘I love you’… Please send me a sign that you’re ok… Maybe it’ll be thru a ham and cheese crepe.. or pasta with white sauce… or maybe even your favorite carrot cake.
“We loved hard… and I can’t wait to ride bikes along the beaches of heaven with you one day.” (sic)
Savannah and Nic began dating in the fall of 2017 but called off their romance in 2020, having got engaged in 2018.
Nic’s death was confirmed by TMZ and in a statement Saturday afternoon from the Ducks.
It read: “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.”
TMZ reported that the retired sportsman had died as a “result of his injuries” as he hit a “stop sign in a residential area north of central Nashville”.
They also stated that Nicolas had hit the driver’s side of a BMW, with Kerdiles immediately being transferred to a local hospital.
