There are reports surfacing today saying the fiance of Taylor Pyatt—Carly Bragnalo—has been killed in a car crash while on vacation in Jamaica. Taylor has left the team and flown home to Thunder Bay to be with his family.

It is hard to know what to say when an event like this occurs. I find myself with the same loss of words as when Luc Bourdon was tragically killed this summer.  I think the best we can all do is offer our deepest condolences to Pyatt, his family, and Carly's family. 

Taylor and Carly were set to be married this Summer.
