Former Northern Michigan goalie Michael Doan died in a single-car accident on Saturday morning (July 15) in Minnesota, according to the Mining Journal.
He was just 25.
According to the report, Doan was driving a 2013 Nissan Altima on Highway 14 just outside Rochester when his car reportedly went into a ditch, struck a utility pole and landed on its top.
Doan played for the Wildcats from 2012 to 2015, and was named to the WCHA All-Academic Team for the 2014-15 season. He posted a 5-13-2 record at NMU before transferring to the University of Windsor for the 2015-16 season.
Last season, Doan played for the Knoxville Ice Bears and the Evansville Thunderbolts of the Southern Professional Hockey League, playing in a total of 20 games.
