Dmitri Valerievich Tertyshny (Russian: Дмитрий Валерьевич Тертышный) (December 26, 1976 – July 23, 1999) was a Russian professional ice hockey defenceman who played one season in the National Hockey League (NHL) for the Philadelphia Flyers and four seasons in Russia for Traktor Chelyabinsk.

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.[1] He spent three more seasons with Chelyabinsk before joining the Philadelphia Flyers in the 1998–99 season.[2]

Fatal accident[edit]

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[3] and his jugular vein.
