Erik Karlsson's unborn son dies

Recommended Posts

Sounds an awful lot like what the Staals experienced:


Ottawa Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson's unborn son has died, the team announced Tuesday. 

Karlsson and his wife Melinda announced in November that they were expecting their first child. According to the Ottawa Citizen, the baby was due in April.


"The collective thoughts and prayers of the Ottawa Senators organization, the city of Ottawa and entire hockey community rest with Erik and Melinda Karlsson following the loss of their son," the Senators said in a statement.  "We ask that you respect the family's wishes for privacy during the grieving process."


Karlsson, 27, will not play Tuesday night when the Senators host the Florida Panthers. He did not practice Monday.
