Police in Sheffield, England, say they have made an arrest in the death of hockey player Adam Johnson.
South Yorkshire Police said in a statement Tuesday a man has been arrested on suspicion of manslaughter and is in police custody.
The release did not name the suspect.
Johnson, a forward for the Nottingham Panthers of the Elite Ice Hockey League, had his neck cut by a skate blade during an Oct. 28 game against the Sheffield Steelers.
He was later pronounced dead in hospital. A post-mortem confirmed he died as a result of a fatal neck injury.
The 29-year-old Johnson, a native of Grand Rapids, Minn., appeared in 13 NHL games with the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2019 and 2020.
