"We received reports of an incident during a Sheffield Steelers versus Nottingham Panthers game at the Utilita Arena in Sheffield, where a player sustained serious injuries. Our officers, in conjunction with other emergency services, swiftly arrived at the scene, and a man in his twenties was urgently transported to the hospital with severe injuries. Regrettably, he was later pronounced deceased at the hospital.
