22

Tragedy has struck the hockey blogosphere again, as a young man opened fire in a movie theatre for a midnight showing of the new Batman movie in Aurora, Colorado, last night. Among the 12 who were killed was Jessica Redfield, an up-and-coming correspondent for the Colorado Avalanche. The link above is from Mile High Hockey, SBNation's Avalanche blog, where a couple of their writers were very good friends with Jessica. Many news stories about the shooting are all over the infosphere right now, if you feel inclined to learn more. Our condolences to the families and friends of those whose lives were taken.
