EDMONTON, AB - The family of Oilers and Bakersfield Condors forward Colby Cave provided the following update on his status Thursday morning.

Colby is still in a medically-induced coma. This is giving his brain time to heal and rest from all he's been through. We would like to thank the Oilers organization, the entire hockey community, all of our friends, and family, and everyone who has shown us love and support.

We would like to send a big thank-you to Colby's critical care team, neurosurgeons and nurses at Sunnybrook Hospital. We appreciate all that you are doing for our Colby.

The 25-year-old underwent emergency surgery in Toronto on Tuesday to remove a colloid cyst that was causing pressure on his brain.
