Many of you may have heard of Ryan Christian, the daughter of long-time minor league player Jeff Christian, who was an inspiration to many for her battle against cancer. Her dad played against the Komets in the old IHL, mostly with Cleveland, and two years ago in the CHL with Evansville. Ryan died today at age 10 after fighting the disease for several years. I believe Ryan was also very good friends with Kevin St. Pierre's daughter Abby.
God Bless you, Ryan, and your family.
