A northern Ontario community is in mourning after a teenage hockey player died following an on-ice collision during practice on the weekend.

The player, 16-year-old Kristopher Meshake, was taken to hospital in Thunder Bay with a suspected broken leg after the mishap.

He was also complaining of chest pains.

Meshake died on the weekend.

The coroner's office says it appears to have been a tragic accident and is hoping an autopsy will pinpoint the cause of death.

Meshake was a member of the Aroland First Nation.
