    No way! I always loved getting to hear what he had to say about prospects in interviews. This is a downer. I had no idea he had cancer.

    Knew he was battling and wasn't looking good, but never expected this to happen so soon for him.

    RIP EJ.

    Wow. So sad and way too young. I had no idea that he was even sick. I think he was giving radio interviews not that long ago.

    Afwul. I met EJ a couple years ago at the powerade center, he was glad to reminisce about his days coaching the Guelph Storm. I really appreciated him for taking the time to talk with me, a fan and wannabe scout.

    RIP EJ

    Cancer takes another one :( R.I.P. EJ, Your passion and knowledge for hockey was inspirational. But you also seemed like a tremendous person.
