Cooper Marody will honor Colby Cave with a musical ode to the late forward.

Marody has written and produced a song entitled "Agape" as a tribute to his Bakersfield Condors and Edmonton Oilers teammate, according to Condors broadcaster Ryan Holt.

The track will be released June 12 (matching Cave's number with the Oilers), with proceeds going toward the memorial fund established by the team and Cave's family.

Cave died in April at the age of 25 after suffering a brain bleed. He had been placed in a medically induced coma following emergency surgery to remove a colloid cyst.

The two forwards played together with the Condors this season and also suited up together for a game with the NHL club in 2018-19.

Marody has penned two previous tunes, called "I Don't Deserve Her Yet" and "Behind Me." He posted both online last summer.
