Jordan Boyd's life was celebrated Saturday afternoon after the Acadie-Bathurst Titan prospect died suddenly during a workout Monday.

The funeral was held at St. Agnes Parish in Halifax, not far from his hometown of Bedford.

Boyd collapsed on the ice during a Titan practice on Aug. 12. Attempts to revive him by medical personnel were unsuccessful.

The cause of death has not yet been determined. An autopsy was performed last Wednesday and the results should be known soon.

Boyd was drafted this summer by the Titan in the fourth round, 66th overall, in the QMJHL draft.

A Canadian junior hockey player collapsed and died Monday at training camp.

Jordan Boyd "suffered a discomfort" while participating in an individual drill, the Acadie-Bathurst Titan said in a statement.

The 16-year-old Quebec Major Junior Hockey League player collapsed to the ice.

Trainers attempted to revive Boyd numerous times.

His death was confirmed by a doctor at a nearby hospital.

Boyd did not show signs of health problems prior to Monday's session.

"Jordan Boyd had had a complete medical evaluation prior to the camp and didn't seem to have any medical problems that prevented him from participating," the statement said.

In order to confirm the cause of Boyd's death, an autopsy is needed.

"The (league) was informed of the incident and is working in collaboration with the team to bring the necessary support to the parents and players in these difficult times," the statement added.

Boyd, a Bedford, N.S., native, was drafted by the Titan in the fourth round of this summer's QMJHL draft, played for Rothesay Netherwood School last season.
