In typical Brendan fashion, he was more concerned about me. "You promise this isn’t going to be a problem for you? I don’t want this to mess up your career." To be honest, I was nervous for myself. Not because I thought that Brendan’s story would cause me any problems in my career, but because I did not know how I would handle any backlash. Scouting is a tight-knit community, and I am very close with the guys I work with. I would have been both furious and crushed if another scout had something negative to say about my brother. I assured Brendan I would be just fine.

A fantastic article by Patrick Burke on Outsports about his brother Brendan and the Burkes' dedication to advancing his legacy.

Mirtle: The Leafs sent out a statement saying that Brian Burke's son was killed in a car accident. Damien Cox: Brian Burke's son, Brendan, was killed in a car accident today in Indiana. Huge prayers to the family. Brendan Burke courageous young man. Came out in ESPN.com story earlier this year. Hoped to have a career in hockey. So sad.

From James Mirtle and Damien Cox's Twitters What a tragedy for the Burke and Reedy families. Thoughts and prayers go out to them during this tough time.
