>Brendan Burke Killed In Auto Accident
>Sad news late tonight from the Toronto Maple Leafs organization that Brendan Burke, son of Leafs’ General Manager Brian Burke, was killed in an auto accident earlier today. As most of you know, Brendan was a part of ‘The Brotherhood,” working with the Miami hockey program as a student manager. Burke gained notoriety earlier this year when ESPN’s John Buccigross wrote this article publicizing Brendan’s revelation that he- was gay. The article goes into detail about just how accepting the Program was of his situation and how “The Brotherhood” accepted him as one of their own.
