Breaking: Terrible news for Adam Larsson and his family

Earlier this week, Oilers' defenceman Adam Larsson left a morning skate due to a "personal matter" and now we have finally found out what that matter was.



Robert Larsson, Adam Larsson's father and a former 6th round pick of the Los Angeles has  died at age 50. He, like his son, was a hockey defenceman. He spent the entirety of his hockey career in Europe, mostly with the Skelleftea AIK of the SHL.

Several flags were hung at half-mast outside the Skelleftea arena as a sign of respect to their former defenceman.

Our thought and prayers are with the Larsson family.
