Frycer had actually overcome health problems in the past. He was traded to Toronto throughout his novice campaign and went on to play 6 more seasons with the Maple Leafs. "The Maple Leafs company is deeply saddened today to find out of the death of Miroslav Frycer," the team published on its Twitter account Tuesday.
"A life committed to the game, Miroslav played 7 seasons in the white and blue, and is still among the Leafs leading 50 scorers of all-time. Our ideas are with his household."
Frycer had 147 goals and 330 points in 415 NHL regular-season video games with Quebec, Toronto, Detroit and Edmonton and ranks 47 in Maple Leafs history with 268 points.
After his NHL career Frycer played 2 seasons in Germany and another in Italy.
