  • Teammates of 10-year-old who died from flu return to practice

Nico Mallozzi, 10, passed away Sunday in New York's Catskills region as his family drove home from a hockey tournament in Buffalo.

Mallozzi, a hockey player, began feeling ill last week before a tournament in NY but wanted to be with the team, .

"Nico Mallozzi tested positive for Type B flu as did his brother", said Dr. David Reed, the New Canaan health director. The report found that at least three-quarters of kids who died from influenza between 2010 and 2014 had not been vaccinated in the months before they got sick. "The flu season varies every year, but a vaccine can mitigate the symptoms". "At this point, it has been confirmed that Nico had been diagnosed with Influenza B, a strain of the flu that is now spreading in the Northeast".

The tragic death of a New Canaan, Conn. boy has doctors urging parents to get their flu shots.

However, Nico did not play any games with his team, the Connecticut Roughriders Hockey Club.

In a letter posted on the school's website Monday, Luizzi wrote: "Nico was a wonderful, enthusiastic, outgoing boy who was known school-wide for his high spirits, limitless energy and quick smile".

Luizzi told local TV station WTIC that all schools in the town will receive extra cleanings and parents are being encouraged to keep their children home from school if they're not feeling well.

Members of the community also expressed their condolences to the Mallozzi family via Twitter.

"It is a very sad day for all of us", the statement read.

New Canaan Police Tweeted a message of condolence as well.

Mallozzi's family has set up a GoFundMe page to deal with funeral costs.

They said Nico was rushed to a hospital after he became sick. The team says Nico never had any contact with anyone at any hockey rinks and left WNY. "Nico was an awesome player, teammate and friend. not to mention, a bit of jokester with a trademark smile".
