RIP, Gaets...

Per TSN.ca: Former Capital Gaetan Duchesne has passed away at the young age of 44 after suffering cardiac arrest while working out.

It's a very sad day indeed... I may have been very young when he played for the Caps but I remember him in his last season here and with other teams later on. And it was only last week I was watching him skate around in the Caps' Alumni game, his hair thinning but his legs still those of an NHLer.

How very surreal and shocking that someone so young could be taken from us. My sincerest sympathies go out to the Duchesne family in this tragic time.

Special thanks to Hockey Amor for the heads-up...

This is horribly sad. And hard to believe-we just saw him; he looked great.
