Thoughts and Prayers to Vit Family and UK Hockey

S. Hannigan /
Please remember to keep the family of University of Kentucky hockey player, Taylor Vit, as well as the entire UK hockey team and community in your thoughts and prayers.  Vit passed away yesterday afternoon after being fatally injured in an automobile accident this past Sunday. 

May God bless all of you with peace and comfort during this difficult time.

Vit was one of two alternate captains on the college hockey team (the Wildcats / "Cool Cats"), #14 (there have been many sites already dedicated to his number including a Facebook page).

According to the American Chronicle:

An assistant captain of the University of Kentucky hockey team died Monday afternoon after a crash Sunday in which the sport utility vehicle he was driving rear-ended a LexTran bus.

Taylor Vit, 22, of Villanova, Pa., was pronounced dead at 3:32 p.m. at the University of Kentucky Chandler Medical Center, according to the Fayette County Coroner's Office.

He was driving a 2007 Nissan Xterra when he rear-ended the bus as it was pulling to a stop on Newtown Pike near Fourth Street just before 5 p.m. Sunday, police said.
THANK YOU also to fellow Pens fan, Char G., for the following:

if you don't mind, could you ask the girls to pray for a University of Kentucky hockey player, #14, Taylor Vit. He was killed in a car accident on Sunday and although he wasn't drafted by any NHL team, he had such talent and heart that was remarkable in any hockey player (in fact he reminded me a lot of Sid :-) )
