Indeed it's unfortunate and underscores one of the dangers of the game.

With a lineage like his.. I'm sure he'll be involved in hockey some how. Wouldn't be surprised if the Canadiens offered him a position when he's ready.

He's joining the Columbus Blue Jackets as a scout.

My mee maw went to church with his paw paw when he lived in GA. My mee maw asked if I knew who he was and I about shat my pants!! Needless to say that same day I ordered a Habs sweater with his number & name and he was gracious enough to sign it for me.

"Anytime you do something for 25 years of your life and it's snatched away from you, it's tough," Geoffrion said, via Rob Mixer of the Blue Jackets. "I'm really excited to join a great organization led by great people. This has made me realize there's a lot more to life than playing hockey."

"We're all told at some point in time that we can no longer play the children's game, we just don't know when that's gonna be. Some of us are told at eighteen, some of us are told at forty, but we're all told."
