Late NHLer Jimmy Hayes died with fentanyl, cocaine in his system - Sportsnet
In the interview, Hayes’ widow Kristen and father Kevin say they hope that sharing their family’s experience will help others avoid a similar tragedy.
“I hope getting Jimmy’s story out there can save someone’s life,” Kevin Hayes said. “If this can save someone from the pain, great. It’s just so sad.”
There was really no way the information coming out about him would have avoided being heartbreaking but I agree with his widow and father in hoping that sharing the news will help others avoid the same.
