The official cause of death has not been released."He was a real salt-of-the-earth guy," said Griffins forward and another Sherwood Park product Nolan Yaremchuk, 25. "He really thought about other people before he thought about himself. I think that Nakehko was so special in so many different ways. For one, he was so funny, he had a charismatic personality, and he was always wanting to come to the rink to get better. His drive for hockey was something I'd never seen before. He loved playing hockey."

Part Dene and part Cree, Lamothe was a role model for Indigenous youth. He grew up on the Bigstone Cree Nation at Calling Lake and helped run youth hockey programs. Last February, Lamothe invited youth from his community to spend a day with him at MacEwan."He was an incredible teammate and he was very well liked in the dressing room," Griffins head coach Mike Ringrose, a former player for the Sherwood Park Crusaders, said. "He was infectious in terms of his attitude and his work ethic. He was easily the fittest player on our team. Anytime we did any type of fitness competition, he was the one that always came out on top and took care of his body and his diet. He was a leader for us in that regard. On the ice, he was extremely competitive, worked exceptionally hard and was hard to play against. The type of guy you were certainly happy to have on your team and you didn't want to see on the other side."According to teammates the six-foot-three, 210-pound forward was dedicated to fitness."We had a team party one time and us being university guys, some guys brought beer to the party and Nakehko brings 12 eggs," Gotaas said. "He was just a health consci...
