Today some sad news has broken ahead of the NHL offseason beginning former Toronto Maple Leaf Sergei Berezin has passed away.

The NHL announced today on X that former Toronto Maple Leafs draft pick and NHLer Sergei Berezin passed away at the age of 52.
The NHL Alumni Association is heartbroken to learn of the sudden passing of Sergei Berezin at the age of 52 years old.
Sergei was drafted in the 10th round of the 1994 Entry Draft to the @MapleLeafs. He would soon show his spectacular play when he joined the Leafs roster in 1996, spending five seasons with the team.

Berezin then played for the @ArizonaCoyotes, @CanadiensMTL, @NHLBlackhawks, and the @Capitals as his career went on. He totalled for 502 regular-season games-played, scoring 286 points.

In his retirement, he enjoyed coaching minor hockey, playing tennis, and most importantly, spending time with his family.

We send our deepest condolences to Sergei's family, friends, and former teammates during this extremely difficult time.

After being selected 10th overall in the 1994 NHL Draft Sergei Berezin would go on to have a successful career with the Toronto Maple Leafs playing 5 seasons and racking up 220 points. After his time with the Maple Leafs he would go on to play seasons with the Montreal Canadiens, Arizona Coyotes, Chicago Blackhawks, and Washington Capitals.
In total in his career, Sergei Berezin played over 500 games and had over 280 points. For a player who was below six feet in an era where small players did not thrive, that's an impressive career.
Our condolences go out to his family, friends, former teammates, and former coaches during such a difficult time.
