Not a death, but the family of "Mr. Hockey" himself, Gordie Howe, has revealed that he's battling the early stages of dementia. Doesn't sound like he's in any immediate danger, but probably something to keep an eye on.

I'd say he has about 5 years or so left in him depending on other health issues.
My gran suffered from dementia for about 30 years.
it got steadily worse until she passed away at the age of 86

A good line never dies
It just smells funny

Montreal Canadiens' legend Butch Bouchard died at the ripe age of 92.
He was in my dead pool last year- oh well, that is the way the puck bounces.

The last 'position player' to substitute as a goalie in an NHL game, Jerry Toppazzini, has died. He was actually a fairly notable player in Northern Ontario.

Pittsburgh Penguins' 26-year old defenseman Kris Letang is out for 6 weeks after suffering a stroke.

Apparently, he was born with a small hole in the wall of his ventricle- this kind of news is heart-breaking.
