It was announced this morning that former National Hockey League player Raymond Sawada had sadly passed away at the young age of 38, while playing in a recreational hockey game.

The 38 year old was drafted in 2004, and made it into 11 NHL games during his career for the Dallas Stars.

While the cause of death has yet to be announced, Richmond Sockeyes President Doug Patterson shared some heartbreaking news with Global News , that should bring tears to everyones eyes:

It was his oldest daughter's birthday yesterday, he's celebrating her birthday, then going off to hockey and poor fella doesn't return home to his family. It's just devastating and it's just been really tough on all of us.

A Gofundme page has been set up for his daughters, and had a goal of reaching $50,000, but as of the time of writing, it's already surpassed that amount, totalling: $195,570.

Rest in Peace Raymond.
