ISTANBUL, Turkey (AP) - New York Rangers forward Roman Lyashenko was found dead in a hotel room while vacationing in Turkey.

The Rangers said Monday that the cause of death wasn't immediately known. However, Turkey's Anatolia news agency reported it was a suicide.

Yuri Koritskiy, a Russian consular official, said the 24-year-old hockey player had been with his mother and sister in Antalya, a southern Mediterranean resort province popular with Russian and other European tourists. He said Lyashenko died Saturday but would not provide any other details.

The Anatolia news agency said Lyashenko apparently hanged himself with his belt in his hotel room.

The consulate was making preparations to send the body back to Russia this week, Koritskiy said.

Lyashenko played regularly with the Dallas Stars his first two seasons in the NHL, then was traded to the New York Rangers late in the 2001-02 season. Last season, the forward played one game with New York, spending the year with Hartford for the American Hockey League, where he had 23 goals and 35 assists.

``Roman was a quality individual who had a positive impact on everyone he touched, both on and off the ice,'' said Glen Sather, the Rangers' president, general manager and coach.

In 138 NHL games, Lyashenko had 14 goals and nine assists. The Russian was selected by Dallas in the second round of the 1997 NHL entry draft.

Suicide? Why oh why? That has to be the MOST tragic cause of death and the most difficult for the family to deal with. So very sad.

The Rangers have called a 4:30 PM ET Press Conference, most likely to address and discuss the death of Lyashenko.

It's just getting worse and worse. I must have missed the part that he hung himself. I don't understand it but I guess we won't. I was really hoping that the Stars would put something up, indeed very classy.

I was sort of wondering what Dew did - was it an legitimate suicide, or a homicide MADE TO LOOK LIKE a suicide? It seemed a bit odd of him to be killing himself when he's on vacation with him mom and sister, no less :( . Either way, it's way too tragic and sad.

(I do realize anyone can pretty much commit suicide whenever they want, just don't know how many people elect to do so outside the country on a trip is all..... and god knows there's so much Russian mob/mafia sh**, it makes me wonder).

This was shocking to me and it is really tragic. On the Russian mob, they do have a strong presence in Turkey and they did demand money from players before (especially players with family in Russia)

I read a translation of the original article off a Russian news site. It was tough to make out, but it sounded like a former teammate and the coach of Lyashenko's former team in Russia have also died recently of suspicious causes.

Something very odd about this one. :(

Here's the Babel translation of the site I mentioned above (it's real rough):

Russian forvard of cloud/club NKHL "New York Reyndzhers" 24- summer novel Lyashenko tragically camber, being found on leisure in Turkey.

The details of the death of young hockey player are not thus far known.However, information about the death 24- summer of eks- that attacking team Russia (Lyashenko it was drawn into the national composite in 1999, but into the composition of the composite of Aleksandr yakusheva to the championship of peace/world into Norway it did not fall at the last moment/torque) in the telephone conversation with the correspondent "gazety.Ru" confirmed the general manager of Yaroslavl "locomotive" Yuri Lukin.Lyashenko before its departure in NKHL it spoke in favor of Yaroslavl cloud/club, because they perceived the tragedy of hockey player in Yaroslavl' closely to the heart.

On one of the versions, in Turkey it was located on leisure together with the family and died of the heart insufficiency in the hotel number.In all likelihood, Lyashenko it died in the sleep.Turkish policemen arrived in the hotel in the morning revealed/detected Lyashenko by already dead.The hockey community of Russia is found in the shock and it is not thus far ready to give the official explanations to the occurred tragedy.Thus far sharp/acute heart insufficiency the lethal outcome considers the most plausible version of death Lyashenko, although they speak both about the auto-catastrophe and about the fact that Lyashenko it sunk/drowned in the sea.



Lyashenko no longer first loss, which bears the Yaroslavl hockey.

During January of 2003 years, let us recall, on the balcony of its own apartment was found the body of the trainer of the Yaroslavl cloud/club of Aleksey Traseukh.As a result of investigation it was established that it was shot down from the gun.

Then, on 6 June of this year, into the auto-catastrophe fell the shielding the colors of "locomotive" player team Russia, close friend Lyashenko Vladimir Antipov.As a result of emergency perished the wife of hockey player Mary, player himself with the numerous damages was delivered into the hospital

But is still earlier, in 1999, in the auto-catastrophe camber player then even Yaroslavl "torpedo" Vladimir Zhashkov.

It is necessary to say that the interseason is frequently turned around by tragedies for the Russian hockey players.Several years ago, being found on aqueous leisure, by the nelepeyshim means camber Russian enkhaelovets Dmitriy Tertyshnyy;however, present in spring, already after the end of season in Togliatti, in the emergency seriously suffered one of most talented Russian yuniorov of Igor Grigorenko.

By the way, Lyashenko, that was the captain of youth team Russia on the championship of the peace/world of 1999 victorious for it, in the future season completely could become odnoklubnikom Grigorenko.After five years, carried out after the ocean, the hockey player, who played in the finale of the goblet of Stanley 1999 - 2000 years, lost place in the basic composition of cloud/club NKHL. after passing by the spring of last year from "Dallas" to "New York Reyndzhers", novel Lyashenko so could not become its in the new command.Forvard of defensive plan already conducted negotiations from the tol'yattinskoy "Ladoy", which heads the former trainer Lyashenko on the Yaroslavl "torpedo" Peter Vorobyev, apropos of his return to Russia, but from completing them him death prevented.
