Young daughter of ex-Union defenseman Dagenais dies

Some very sad news involving former Union College defenseman Randy Dagenais and his wife Helene Cousineau.

Their 16-month-old daughter Evelyne passed away Friday of complications from the flu, according to the Sheffield (England) Steelers web site. The Steelers are in the Elite Ice Hockey League, and Dagenais played their from 2007-10.

Dagenais played 123 games for the Dutchmen from 1999-2003, and had 11 goals and 50 assists. He was a key player in helping the Dutchmen begin their turnaround from a laughingstock program to where they are today.

Dagenais was always a class act, and a good interview. I just feel so horrible for him and his wife. This is something no parent should go through.

The Steelers honored the family during Saturday's game against the Belfast Giants. To watch the emotional tribute, click here.

To Randy and his wife, you have my heartfelt condolences.
