Habs Inside/Out, on behalf of the site and its readers, expresses its sympathies to Canadiens defenceman Ryan O’Byrne, who lost his mother, Lorelei, to breast cancer on Jan. 28.
O’Byrne had taken a leave of absence early last month, missing four games for family reasons, when his mother was critically ill. Her passing is announced in this notice.
O’Byrne is expected to remain with the team, a memorial service for his mother to be held in Victoria, B.C., next Tuesday.
(Nice idea from reader Peter Stone in a comment below: if you wish to send your wishes to Ryan, visit the link above and sign the guestbook at the bottom of the notice.)
