Alan Thicke Reportedly Died Playing Hockey With His Son

Alan Thicke reportedly died after suffering a heart attack while playing hockey with his youngest son.

Celebrity Alan Thicke, who was most known for playing Jason Seaver on Growing Pains, passed away on Tuesday at the age of 69. Thicke reportedly suffered a heart attack while playing pickup hockey with 19-year-old son Carter at an ice-skating rink in Los Angeles. Thicke was a huge hockey fan.

Here's more, via TMZ:

Alan played hockey regularly at a rink in Burbank. We're told he and Carter were on the ice around 11 AM when he started having chest pain, then got nauseous and vomited. The ambulance picked him up around 11:30 and took him to the hospital.

Thicke's son Robin took to Instagram over night to call his father the "best man" he'd ever known.

Thicke's death is a huge loss for the hockey community. Dozens of NHL teams have paid tribute to him on social media.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Thicke family during this tough time.
