Some sad news to report — Katie Moore, wife of veteran NHLer Dominic Moore, has passed away after a battle with liver cancer.

The hockey world first learned of her illness shortly after Moore missed the final two games of the Sharks' opening-round playoff loss to St. Louis last year. 

The Sharks offered this statement:

"The San Jose Sharks organization would like to offer their heartfelt condolences to Dominic Moore and the Urbanic family regarding the passing of Katie Moore. The courage that she showed during her illness is an inspiration to everyone who knew her.  You will all be in our thoughts and prayers."
