Former Ducks player Kerdiles, 29, killed in crash

0

Former Anaheim Ducks forward Nic Kerdiles was killed in a motorcycle crash Saturday in Nashville, Tennessee. He was 29.

Police reported that Kerdiles, riding his Indian motorcycle, ran a stop sign then hit the driver’s side of a BMW SUV, according to The Tennessean. Neither driver appeared to be impaired.

“We’re heartbroken to hear the news about Nic Kerdiles,” the Ducks posted to social media. “Our thoughts and deepest sympathies go out to his family and loved ones.”

Kerdiles was raised in Irvine, California, and became the first home-area player from Orange County drafted by the Ducks when they selected him in the 2012 draft.

The second-round pick played in three games over two seasons with the Ducks (2016-18) then was traded to Winnipeg but never appeared in a Jets uniform.

Non-hockey fans knew Kerdiles for his time on the reality show “Chrisley Knows Best.” He formerly was engaged to Savannah Chrisley and appeared on the show that chronicled the adventures of her family.
