RIP Dan Snyder

From the main page of the Owen Sound site (http://www.attackhockey.com/index.cfm?page=0)

"Former Owen Sound Plater Captain Dan Snyder has succumbed to the injuries he received last Monday night in a car crash in Atlanta, Georgia.

Dan passed away early this evening.

Our condolences to the Snyder family and friends. Our prayers are with you."

Mine are with you too.

Awful news. Its always the passanger thats the victim. That is terrible new for everyone and no that it's important, but Dany will never be the same after this. RIP Hopefully everyone will learn lessons from this tradgedy.

Neither TSN or Sportsnet have made it official.

Until then, one can only hope that the link above is false and that Dan is alright for another day.

Sadly this is official. It has just broken on all Atlanta TV stations.

A sad day in the hockey community.

It is an official Ontario Hockey League team website. They wouldn't post such news if it was not 100% confirmed.

This is reliable. It was broadcast on Atlanta news a little while ago. I'm told now that ESPN news and TSN have followed suit.

Yeah, it's on TSN now too. This really sucks. All the best to Snyder's family, and to Heatley and his, too. It's just a really sad day.

A kid just died, how a hockey player fares should be the least of our worries. If I am not mistaken a wife and child are left without a husband and a father. Dany Heatley should be the last things on our minds.

I feel terrible. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends. Shame this had to happen for both players but this is truly a tragic.

Rest in peace Dan, we can comfort ourselves knowing he's in a better place now.
