THUNDER BAY, Ont. — Vancouver Canucks forward Taylor Pyatt returned to his hometown of Thunder Bay, Ont., on Friday after his fiancee was killed in a car accident.
Carly Bragnalo was killed Thursday in a crash in Jamaica, where she was on holiday. She was 27.
"Today the Canucks lost a member of our family," Canucks general manager Mike Gillis said in a statement. "Carly was a lovely and generous young woman who shared her spirit for life with our players, their spouses and their extended families. We will support the Bragnalo family, Taylor and his entire family in any way we can during this very difficult time."
The couple was to be married this summer.
