The statement reads:

“Rodion commenced the 2021-22 season with Salavat Ufa of the KHL but suffered an injury to open the season. During the course of his recovery from this injury, he developed some new, unrelated symptoms that required ongoing extensive investigations over the last few months.

Rodion has the complete support of the Toronto Maple Leafs organization and we will continue to ensure he receives the best care possible throughout this process.

Out of respect for Rodion and his family, the Club will not have any further comment at this time.”

Amirov himself commented on the news and said, “I want to stay positive, and I want people to think positively about me.” He talked about how others are sick and are dealing with their own illnesses and that he wants to show by example that there is hope out there for others. Amirov also thanked the Maple Leafs for their support, as he did his KHL team, Salavat Yulaev Ufa.

We’re hoping Amirov can make a full recovery and our thoughts and prayers go out to Amirov and his family.
