I read that. Don’t remember him in the NHL but so tragic.  Just 29.

A similar thing happened to a former Cap, Richard Zednik, after he had been traded to Florida...carotid artery sliced open on the ice.  Fortunately the team medic was right at rinkside and managed to stanch the bleeding before he died.

stanching the bleeding is one thing, but you can't shut off blood supply to the head, either. amazing that zednik survived

Chris Matthews worked in the WH as a speech writer and knew them well. He suggested caring for her in her decline was something that kept Jimmy going even after his hospice.

I'm sure we all recall the story, about Kissinger, of the 'visiting Swedish journalist' - as he wasn't part of the regular White House press corps, he asked 'why does everyone listen to that Kissinger - all he talks is BS?' 'Yes, he does', came the reply, 'but it's important BS...'   ;)
