Some very sad news to pass along. Former Lightning center Dominic Moore’s wife Katie passed away on Monday. She was diagnosed with a rare form of liver cancer last April, shortly after Moore had been traded to the San Jose Sharks.
The Sharks released a statement on Dom’s behalf in June about her illness.
We send our deepest and most sincere condolences to Dominic and both of their families.
Update- Dominic has issued the following statement through the NHLPA:
“On behalf of my family, I’d like to express our deep appreciation for the overwhelming care and sympathy we have received since my wife’s passing on Monday. The example Katie displayed throughout her life and in particular during her illness is a source of continued strength and inspiration for us all, as is the love and support of those around us. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the future Katie Moore foundation at katiemoore.org.“
