May 20, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

Some extremely sad news this morning as we learn that Kurtis Foster’s
infant daughter
has passed away
. She was just five days old.

Foster is a
finalist for the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy, after he returned from a
horrific leg injury to post 42 points in 71 games as a defenseman for
the Tampa Bay Lightning. Voting for the award has already been
completed, and the winner of the award will be announced on June 23.

Jose
Theodore, a finalist for the award as well, lost his infant child last
year.

    Whoa, that’s sad and freaky. My thoughts go out to both players’ families.
