Matt Stajan has been out of the lineup for the past few games and the Calgary Flames released an official statement today regarding the reason for his absence, which is about as horrible and heartbreaking as you could possibly imagine.
It is with great sadness we inform that Katie and Matt Stajan are grieving the loss of their son, Emerson Stajan. Emerson passed away Monday, March 3, 2014, following childbirth.
I can't even begin to imagine how terrible this is for the Stajans. Deepest sympathies to Matt and Katie.
