Nighthawk Family Tragedy
Submitted By Michelle Brown on Wednesday, December 2, 2020
It is with a very heavy heart that I inform you all about a tragic loss that our community as a whole has suffered. 

This morning, one of our young Nighthawk players was travelling to the bus stop with his younger sister when they were both struck by a vehicle.  This young boy passed away and his sister was transported to a trauma centre in Toronto with serious injuries.

I can't even begin to fathom the depths of this tragedy and how far reaching the sadness will be felt by his family, his friends, classmates, teammates and far beyond. 

Every Nighthawk player is like an extended brother or sister to each other.  When this type of pain arises, we all are effected and feel it very deeply.  This loss will be felt especially hard by his teammates and coaches, past and present.  We are thinking of you all while you face the challenges and sadness that a tragedy like this brings.

In the face of adversity, hockey families are quite incredible, full of astounding support and a strong community thoughtfulness.  Please reach out and lean on each other during this period of grief.

On behalf of the entire Nighthawks Family, I would like to extend our deepest condolences to the family during this incredibly difficult time.  You will be in our thoughts and prayers.
