    My mother's family is from Sault Ste. Marie, which hosted the Red Wings training camp. They used to say hi to him all the time as he traveled by on Easterday Ave. RIP.

    He was only 27 and had a great career ahead of him. Sad to see people go too soon

    Odd way to go, too. I wonder what even happened?

    Either the car popped out of gear and crushed him or he forgot to put it in park in the first place. Very odd way to go

    Had the chance to speak with him several times, very nice guy. From what I understand, heavy drinking took its toll, but there was no bigger fan of the Burgundy and Gold and he was a great ambassador for the team. RIP.

    John Saunders, one of the familiar on-air faces of ESPN for nearly 30 years, has died. He was 61.

    Saunders hosted studio and play-by-play programming. He covered college football, basketball and the NHL for the network, in addition to anchoring SportsCenter. He was also host of The Sports Reporters.

    Born in Canada, Saunders was an all-star defenseman in the junior hockey leagues of Montreal and played at Western Michigan before becoming one of the most prominent broadcasters of his time.

    Saunders was a founding member of The V Foundation for Cancer Research and served on the board of directors.

    "John was an extraordinary talent and his friendly, informative style has been a warm welcome to sports fans for decades," said John Skipper, president of ESPN and co-chairman of Disney Media Networks, in a statement. "His wide range of accomplishments across numerous sports and championship events is among the most impressive this industry has ever seen. More importantly, John was a beloved and devoted family man who cared deeply about people and causes, as evidenced by his long-standing efforts as a passionate board member for The V Foundation for Cancer Research.

    Regardless of a panel member's political leanings, the debates were respectful and quite entertaining. McLaughlin will be missed.
