Swiss Hockey Legend Commits Suicide
Another hockey suicide occurred on Thursday. Swiss hockey legend Peter Jaks (brother of former LA Kings goaltender/World Juniors sensation Pauli Jaks) took his own life while in Italy. Jaks stepped in front of a speeding train, with media speculation having Jaks' recent break up with his wife and deep financial problems as reasons for the taking of his life.
IIHF.com and Switzerland's English paper The Local have more on the story.
