(AP) — It’s Buffalo Sabres forward Zemgus Girgensons and the Chicago Blackhawks leading the NHL All-Star Game fan vote with a little over a week left. The Latvian-born Girgensons still leads all players with nearly 1.3 million votes, the NHL announced Tuesday. The other five eligible spots to be selected are held by Blackhawks. Chicago’s Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews are second and third among forwards. Chicago’s Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook lead defensemen, and Corey Crawford leads goalies. Girgensons is the surprise leader thanks to Latvian-based voters, who account for about 80 percent of the second-year player’s total. The only limit on voting is fans can use the same device no more than 10 times a day. Voting closes on Jan. 1, and the game played at Columbus on Jan. 25.

Below is the release from Chicago. We are deeply saddened by the untimely loss of one of our own family members this morning, assistant equipment manager Clint Reif. Like all trainers and support staff within our organization, Clint was instrumental in helping our players and coaches prepare and compete both on and off the ice. Our sincerest sympathies go out to the Reif family. While the cause of death is still unknown according to reports, the below blurb was published in the Chicago Sun-Times. According to a DuPage County coroner statement, Reif was found unresponsive in his Lombard home, where he was pronounced dead at 8:32 a.m. The death still is under investigation by the coroners office and Lombard police, officials said.
