The hockey community, though vast, also forms a tight-knit family where tough situations can strike unexpectedly.

Today, the Waterloo Siskins of the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League took to Twitter to share the sad news of 18-year-old defenseman Tyson Downs' passing.

Hailing from Owen Sound, Downs played one season with the Siskins, showcasing his talent through six goals and seventeen assists in forty-five games.
