The hockey world was faced with difficult news this week, with the passing of Spanish junior national team forward Sergi Pous on Tuesday due to a serious illness.

A native of Llivia, Spain, Pous passed away just 11 days before his 18th birthday. Known to have a good personality by those who knew him, Pous formerly played for CG Puigcerda in Spain before making the jump to play midget hockey in Canada. Two years ago, Pous joined the Ottawa Sting Midget AA team for a season before earning a spot with the Upper Canada Cyclones Midget AAA squad, a team he played very well for. In 18 games, the 6’3 forward put up nine goals and 14 points to finish fourth in team scoring despite playing in less games than the three players in front of him.

Pous was also an accomplished player with both the Spanish U18 and U20 team’s, taking home silver medals in all three tournaments in participated in. Pous won two of his medals this past season, even finishing with three goals at the U18 event to finish tied for second in his team in that category.

Sergi’s funeral will be held this week in Llivia. He was just 17.

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page: http://www.thehockeyhouse.net
