OHL Mourns the Loss of Dan Buccella

 

The Ontario Hockey League is saddened by news of the passing of alumnus Dan Buccella, who died Sunday in Birmingham, Alabama following a battle with leukemia at the age of 39.

The Woodbridge, Ont. native played three OHL seasons with the Peterborough Petes, London Knights and Mississauga IceDogs from 2000-03, before embarking on a lengthy minor pro career spent largely in the SPHL where he won a championship with the Pensacola Ice Flyers to wrap up his playing career in 2013.

Buccella, whose #47 is retired by the Pensacola Ice Flyers, had been living in Florida. He leaves behind a wife and two young sons. The OHL sends thoughts and condolences to his family and friends at this difficult time.
