At Sheffield’s Utilita Arena, the Panthers declared a “major medical emergency,” prompting over 8,000 spectators to be evacuated from the venue.

“Everyone at the club including players, staff, management, and ownership are heartbroken at the news of Adam’s passing,” the Panthers said in a statement. “Our thoughts are also with the fans and staff of both clubs, especially those who attended or were following the game, who will be devastated following today’s news.

“The Panthers would like to thank everyone who rushed to support Adam last night in the most testing of circumstances.

“Adam, our number 47, was not only an outstanding ice hockey player, but also a great teammate and an incredible person with his whole life ahead of him. The Club will dearly miss him and will never ever forget him.”

The EIHL declared that all of the games scheduled for Sunday have been postponed.

“The thoughts and condolences of everyone connected with the EIHL are with Adam’s family, friends and teammates at this incredibly sad and difficult time,” the league said.

In portions of two seasons from 2018 to 2020, Johnson played in 13 games for the Pittsburgh Penguins, recording four assists and one goal. He played for the Philadelphia Flyers and Los Angeles Kings AHL affiliates in addition to spending three seasons in part with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, the Penguins’ AHL affiliate.

“The Pittsburgh Penguins join the entire hockey world in mourning the loss of Adam Johnson, whose life tragically ended far too soon,” the Penguins said in a statement. “We offer our deepest condolences to Adam’s family and friends, as well as all of Adam’s past and present teammates and coaches. Adam will always be a part of the Penguins family. It was our honor to watch him fulfill his dream of playing in the National Hockey League.”

A statement from the NHL said, “Our prayers and deepest condolences go to his family, friends, and teammates.”

Johnson attended the University of Minnesota-Duluth after being born in Grand Rapids, Minnesota. He was in his first season with the Panthers and had begun his career overseas in 2020.
