Touching Article on Taylor Pyatt's Loss (In His Own Words)

I'm not sure how many of you remember the tragedy that happened around two years ago when Tyler Pyatt lost his fiance in a car accident just four months before their wedding (FOR MORE ON THAT STORY, CLICK HERE), but I just found this really wonderful article at TSN that tells the story from Pyatt's perspective (about a year after the accident).

Since then, Pyatt had a much-needed change in his life when he was traded from the Canucks to the Coyotes and continues the healing process from the tragic loss.

I would highly recommend reading it ... it's more of a human story than it is about hockey, but touching nonetheless.  It's a testiment to human tragedy and triumph (as it relates to this particular hockey player).

I remember this really clearly. I think I was in social studies. And the game was the next day so there was a ceremony for him. I grew up with Pyatt with the Canucks practically so it felt like a little bit of family was lost.

Anyways, I hope the Bragnalo's and the Pyatt's are doing better now! Prayers are still with them.
