Police Investigate Death at Kettler Capitals Iceplex

Police are investigating a death that occurred at Kettler Capitals Iceplex in Ballston just before noon today.

A man in his 20s or 30s suffered some sort of a medical emergency in the complex. Paramedics performed CPR on the man, believed to be a youth hockey coach, and took him to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The incident happened while the Washington Capitals were practicing in an adjacent rink. Police have confirmed that they’re investigating a death, but have not released any other details.

Detectives were on scene taking statements from witnesses earlier this afternoon.

Update at 5:30 p.m. — As first reported by DCist, the man who died has been identified as Kettler Capitals Iceplex hockey director Brian St. Louis.

St. Louis has also been serving as a youth hockey coach for the Washington Little Capitals.

The following has been posted on the Little Capitals web site:

The Washington Little Capitals, the Kettler Capitals Iceplex and the DC hockey community lost a great person today when Brian St. Louis passed away unexpectedly in Arlington, Va.

The Little Caps organization and the Kettler Capitals Iceplex extend their deepest sympathies to Brian’s wife, Emily, and his surrounding family and friends.

Coach St. Louis spent eight years with the Little Caps organization as a player, team captain, assistant coach, head coach and hockey director. Two years ago Coach St. Louis made a career transition when he became the hockey director at the Kettler Capitals Iceplex.

Brian’s passion for the sport of hockey and the people involved will long be remembered in this area.

Funeral arrangements and other information will be passed along when finalized.

Signature Theatre just released single tickets for all 33rd season productions, which highlights the organization’s long-time relationship with legendary composer Stephen Sondheim. Beginning with the musical adaptation of The Color Purple and irreverent No Place to Go, the season continues with three Sondheim musicals, the DC premieres of Off-Broadway hit Which Way to the Stage and Pulitzer Prize finalist Selling Kabul, the Tony Award®-winning rock musical Passing Strange, and return of Signature’s cabaret series honoring legendary artists.

“Last November, the world lost an icon. The death of Stephen Sondheim was a blow to everyone in the theater community. Signature Theatre would not be the same without Sondheim — he IS Signature’s ‘signature.’ This season, we are honoring the legend with productions of Into the Woods, Pacific Overtures and Sweeney Todd dedicated to his memory. These shows represent the diversity and range of Sondheim,” said Signature’s Artistic Director Matthew Gardiner about the new season.
