« Former Komet Rob Guinn dies -- updated | Main | I guess it finally hit me -- pow -- like a Rob Guinn hip-check »

July 14, 2008



Whether young or old, it is always painful to lose a loved one. I never saw Guinn or McLeod play, but my heart goes out to their families and friends in this sad and difficult time. Neither of them will ever be forgotten.

My Heart and Prayers go to the McLeod Family, as well Continued with the Guinn Family. I am deeply saddened by there passings.


Rob Guinn was a true professional on and off the ice. He was always willing to talk about the team and the game. He represented the K's organization with class. What I truly admired about him was his dedication to complete his college education and was studying to be a nurse. May God be with his family and his little girl.


I didnt really know Rob but I will very well pray for him. Hopefully God will help heal the family from the pain and ease them back. I am very sorry about the accident. I hope everyting will be okay with the family


What a sad day for hockey and human's.

RIP Rob and Hartley. Prayers and thoughts go out to both families from mine.


I'll always remember the hit Guinn put on Proulx of Rockford a few years back. There was a great picture of it too at the time. Justin, any chance of digging that one up from the archives? Guinn was a true class act!


My thoughts and prayers go out to the McLeod family.
