Theodore: 'It's Going to Be the Biggest Challenge'

Jose Theodore on Saturday said he's facing the "biggest challenge" of his life after losing his two-month old son last month.

"It's the best it could be," Theodore said moments after addressing reporters at the podium on Saturday. "It's something new for me. I'm dealing with it the best I can, and being around the guys here helps get my mind off things."

"But it's definitely going the biggest challenge for me," he said. "I've been through some hard stuff but nothing compared to this. I'm going tell you how the season goes on. But for now, I'm just doing the best that I can."

General Manager George McPhee said of Theodore's tragic loss: "Jose is a really well grounded guy, and obviously he had a heartbreaking experience. Sometimes people go through things like that, lose family members, and hockey is sometimes your sanctuary [because] you can get away from everything else and play. He's good character guy and strong-willed guy and I'm sure he'll see his way through this."
