Henrik Lundqvist and Brad Richards add their thoughts on this tragic summer (via ESPN.com).

Original Post:
Jim Cerny at Blueshirts United was able to speak with Marian Gaborik about the difficult summer he’s had dealing with the death of close friends Derek Boogaard and now Pavol Demitra…

“This summer has been crazy, two young guys who die just like that,” said Gaborik. “I just don’t know what to say. It’s so hard to explain with words.”

On the support of his teammates…

“They (his Ranger teammates) have been very supportive, the guys have been very classy,” explained Gaborik. “Torts and Glen (Sather) have been, as well. But I am not the only one who has lost (friends) here. For everyone, to lose hockey family members around the world, it’s hard for everyone.”

On moving forward…

“I have no choice, obviously, life goes on and I will move on.”

Steve Zipay at Newsday and Larry Brooks at the New York Post have more.

…no one can blame him if he has a tough year. Way too much has been dropped on him to be solely focused on hockey. Hopefully, he’s able to use hockey as a distraction and his teammates can rally around him to make what is turning out to be a horrific year for Gabby into a special one.
