More memories of Demitra, crash victims
Thanks to everyone who has shared their thoughts and memories on the passing of former Kings winger Pavol Demitra, as well as all of those who lost their lives in today’s plane crash in Russia. Because of his relatively short time with the Kings, I didn’t have a deep relationship with Demitra, but I will always remember him as kind, respectful and a real professional, on and off the ice. Many great tributes are coming in from around the hockey world, so I thought I would share a couple. First, a couple stories about Demitra’s life and career, followed by some thoughts from Kings president Luc Robitaille, who was Demitra’s teammate on that 2005-06 Kings team.
