Wolf's father told the Sun-Sentinel: "Chance was a great kid and a great student with tons of friends, enjoying college life. He was interning at the local ABC station to get his journalism degree."

Police say they don't suspect foul play in Wolf's death.

The Weston, Florida, native was a member of the UF hockey team. His former high school hockey team, Cypress Bay, tweeted condolences midday Sunday.
