Former Komets defenseman Rob Guinn, 32, was killed near Jefferson, Iowa, at 5:30 p.m. Saturday, when a driver ran a stop sign and hit Guinn's Kia Sportage in the side, flipping the car onto the drivers side.
Guinn, who is survived by his wife Brooke and daughter Olivia, 5 months, was pronounced dead at Greene County Hospital.
I'll just say I always had a tremendous amount of respect for Rob, especially the way he played through some severe shoulder injuries. I'm not sure I've seen a player who put himself through more to get ready to play every night. There were guys who went through more on specific nights, but he did it for every game and he never said a word
I remember eating lunch with him one day, and his shoulders were so bad he had trouble picking up his sandwich. I always wondered how that would affect him in 10, 20 years, but he saw it as a badge of honor to dress for every game
