    Bob Newland, a WR whose 4-year career was spent entirely with the New Orleans Saints, died on 6/30 at age 72.

    Drafted out of Oregon by the Saints in the 7th round of the 1971 NFL Draft, Newland spent 1971-74 catching passes for the Saints. He was not always a starter in those 4 seasons, but did play in all 14 Saints regular season contests in his entire career.

    Matiss Kivlenieks, a young goalie who had brief tours of duty with the Columbus Blue Jackets over the past 2 seasons, died on 7/4 at age 24. Cause of death was originally thought to be a head injury caused by fireworks. However, an autopsy has since revealed that the true cause of death was chest trauma from a fireworks mortar blast, and not a head injury. He wore #80 during his brief NHL career.

    Eldon Danenhauer, a right tackle whose pro football career began in the inaugural year of the American Football League, died on 6/23 at age 85.

    A physical behemoth at 6-5 and 245, his AFL career ran from 1960-65, all with the Denver Broncos. He appeared in 2 Pro Bowls, and played in every game in 5 of his 6 seasons, starting in the vast majority of them.

    Despite his lineman build, he even ran back a kickoff for 11 yards during a game in 1962.
