Gone before his time

Highly regarded as the best up-and-coming American born goalie, Ian Jenkins was supposed to be doing off-season work outs. He was supposed enjoying his summer before heading to the London Knights next season. Instead, Ian was involved in a tragic accident. Ian was described as a great kid, very caring, motivated, and very passionate about the game of hockey. It is tough to see anyone fall victim to a situation like this and even more tough when you consider that Ian is just 15 years old.

This morning, University of Michigan hospital confirmed that Ian passed away at 7:54AM after fighting all weekend long. It is the most heart-wrenching thing anytime a parent loses a child. I cannot imagine what Ian's parents are going through right now.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the Jenkins Family, All of Ian’s friends, Classmates, Teammates, Coaches, and anyone who is affected by this tragedy.

Ian Jenkins
Rest In Peace
