As some of you may have heard, ESPN forgot to mention any of the tragic deaths that struck the hockey community during their 2011 Year in Review segment. However, a blogger over at Broad Street Hockey didn't. This is list of active players, scouts, coaches, analysts, retired players and other members of the hockey world that passed away over the last 12 months. There are 84 names on the list.
Hopefully 2012 will bring better fates to our sport than 2011 did.
Rest in Peace.
Stick tap to Travis Hughes for his great write-up on it as well.
