Nic Kerdiles, a former Anaheim Ducks player, was killed in a motorcycle crash in Nashville, Tennessee, early Saturday morning. He was 29 years old.

Metro Nashville Police identified Kerdiles as the motorcyclist killed after colliding with an SUV at the intersection of 14th Avenue North and Wheless Street around 3:30 a.m.

A preliminary investigation shows that Kerdiles was driving his Indian Motorcycle west on Wheless Street when he ran a stop sign and struck the driver’s side of a BMW SUV. Police say there were no signs of impairment from either driver.

Kerdiles was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where he died.
