Former Anaheim Ducks forward Nic Kerdiles was killed in a motorcycle crash. He was 29.

The crash occurred Saturday in Nashville, Tenn.

Police there reported Kerdiles, riding his Indian motorcycle, ran a stop sign, then hit the driver’s side of a BMW SUV, per The Tennessean. Neither driver appeared to be impaired.

Kerdiles was raised in Irvine, Calif., and became the first home-area player from Orange County drafted by the Ducks when they selected him in the 2012 draft.

The second-round pick played two seasons with the Ducks (2016-18), then was traded to Winnipeg, but he never appeared in a Jets uniform.

In his brief career in Anaheim, the forward took part in three games and didn’t record any points.

“We’re heartbroken to hear the news about Nic Kerdiles,” the Ducks posted to social media. “Our thoughts and deepest sympathies go out to his family and loved ones.”

Non-hockey fans knew Kerdiles for his time on the reality show “Chrisley Knows Best.” He formerly was engaged to Savannah Chrisley and appeared on the show that chronicled the adventures of her family.
