More specifically, Singroy reports that Ewen died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Blues chairman Tom Stillman released the following statement regarding Ewen earlier on Sunday:
“We are deeply saddened by the passing of former Blue Todd Ewen. Todd was an outstanding individual who called St. Louis home and continued to devote much of his time to the game he loved. On behalf of the entire St. Louis Blues organization, our thoughts and prayers are with the Ewen family during this most difficult time.”
Ewen was a member of the Stanley Cup-winning Montreal Canadiens team from 1993 and also played for the Ducks, Sharks and Blues.
