RIP Alexei Cherepanov

Shocking news out of Russia today. I know it’s a cliche to say that something like this “puts things in perspective,” but really it does. Mike Peca’s suspension and even the continued struggles of Clint Malarchuk do pale in comparison to this news.

Condolences to his family, friends, and fans, and sorry we never got to see him play for the Rangers.

One response to “RIP Alexei Cherepanov

  1. The Cherepanov and Bourdon accidents are tragic, for their families and the NHL. The question is whether these accidents can be prevented in the future. Maybe better testing on the NHL’s part for the Cherepanov situation and educating the players (youngsters) on dangerous activities such as motorcycle etc… Just seems like more should/can be done to prevent tragedies like these from occuring in the future…. and it is ridiculous how the Rangers are seeking another pick to replace Cherepanov.
