The hockey community is mourning the devastating loss of Brian Renaud, a beloved player who tragically passed away at just 17 years old.

Brian's father took to social media to express his heartbreak and the overwhelming pain of losing his cherished son.

In a heartfelt Facebook post, he shared his deep love for Brian and the difficulty of living without him.

I love him so much and dont know how to live without him. The comments, condolences, prayers mean a lot but I want my baby back!!!! I want to hug him so tight and never let him go. Im shattered. I just want him back. My Brian. My Brian. My Brian.

Im emotional and so down. I wrote the above and didnt hit post as I was having a tough moment. They come and go often.
There are things that are happening that are comforting but this is so f-ing hard. I post this GoFundMe created not to be greedy, not for ourselves but for others. There are and will be costs that we arent prepared for and will struggle paying them but for Brian we find a way. We always did. This Fund helps us but helps him. Funds over and above will be used for good. Will be used to honour Brian but help others in the community. He wouldve of absolutely loved that. He was a helper and pleaser by nature. So if able, I know lifes difficult, contribute anything you can. Everything is appreciated. Nothing is expected. The money will be used for Brian, getting through this most difficult time and in Brians name after. Love all you guys. I love you Brian! Mom and Dad love you so much!

The hockey world has rallied together, offering condolences and support during this challenging time.

As we remember Brian Renaud, let us keep his family in our thoughts and prayers, providing them with the love and strength they need. #SticktapsforBrian.
