United States Army Special Forces Sgt. 1st Class Michael A. Cathcart, who skated with the Carolina Hurricanes last season during a practice at Fort Bragg, N.C., died Friday following injuries sustained during combat operations Friday in Kunsuz Province, Afghanistan.

"We are deeply saddened to hear that we've lost Sgt. Cathcart," Hurricanes general manager Ron Francis told the Hurricanes website. "The day that Mike practiced with our team at Cleland Ice Rink at Fort Bragg was a very special day for our players.

"People throw around the word 'hero' too easily sometimes, but Mike Cathcart was a true hero. He proudly served our country and died protecting our safety and freedom. We are grateful for that day we were able to spend with him and the impact he left on our team. On behalf of the Hurricanes organization, I send heartfelt condolences to his family and his unit."

Maple Leafs to add Borje Salming to Legends Row

Friday, 11.14.2014 / 4:50 PM / News

September's launch of the Toronto Maple Leafs 'Legends Row', a monument to honour some of the greatest players in team history, saw two centremen inducted in Darryl Sittler and Ted Kennedy alongside goaltender Johnny Bower. Today the team announced that the man many view as the best defensemen in team history, Borje Salming, would be the fourth statue added in September, 2015.

Salming spent 16 seasons in a Maple Leaf sweater where his strong two-way play put him among the elite defencemen in the game and made him one of the most popular players in team history. After being discovered playing in Sweden by scout Gerry McNamara, Salming joined Toronto in 1973 and made an immediate impact, earning NHL Second All-Star Team honours in his sophomore season before going on to a Hall of Fame career.
