Dmitri Valerievich Tertyshny (Дмитрий Валерьевич Тертышный) (December 26, 1976 - July 23, 1999) was a Russian professional ice hockey defenceman.

Playing career Edit

After spending a year with Traktor Chelyabinsk of the CIS/Russian League, Tertyshny was selected in the sixth round with the Flyers' #132 overall draft pick in the 1995 NHL Entry Draft. He spent three more seasons with Chelyabinsk before joining the Philadelphia Flyers in the 1998–99 season. == Tragic accident == On July 23, 1999, during the offseason after his rookie NHL campaign, Tertyshny was on a boating trip to Okanagan Lake in British Columbia with two players from the Flyers' minor-league affiliate Philadelphia Phantoms, Francis Belanger and Mikhail Chernov, when a freak accident caused him to suffer fatal injuries. The boat hit a wave and caused him to fall forward overboard. The boat ran over him and its propeller slashed his neck and his jugular vein. ==External links==
