3 years later, Dougan family still learning to cope with losing Ari

Ari Dougan made a significant impact on the Blues during her road trip with Vladimir Tarasenko in 2017

by Chris Pinkert / St. Louis Blues

Before Laila Anderson captured the hearts of the hockey world during the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs, there was Arianna Dougan.

Ari, as she liked to be called, was diagnosed with neuroblastoma when she was three years old. She battled off and on for eight years, but she became a household name in April 2017 when she was the guest of Vladimir Tarasenko on a two-game road trip with the team.

About 10 months after her trip, Ari passed away. The entire organization - the players, coaches, staff and even the fans who met her - were devastated.

Below is our entire conversation with Lori.
