Tragedy Strikes Maple Leafs Brian Burke

The Toronto maple leafs issued the followig only moments ago:

“We are saddened to report that Brendan Burke, the youngest son of Leafs President and General Manager Brian Burke, succumbed to injuries he suffered in an auto accident earlier today in Indiana.

The family asks for privacy at this difficult time.”

Words can’t express our deepest sympathy for Brian’s entire family at this most horrible moment in their lives. It certainly puts things into perspective.

I am sure there will be more details shortly.

May Brendan rest in peace and the entire Burke family remeber only the good times and get through this horrible time with as little pain as possible.

    The worst news imaginable for a parent. My sincerest condolences to the Burke family/friends in dealing with this horrible tragedy and to the family/friends of Brendan’s friend who also passed away.
