The Blue Jackets' captain Boone Jenner announced the tragic passing of his son in deeply personal message on Instagram.

Jenner, who missed the last game and today's practice, revealed that his son passed away at birth on March 31st.

Since then, members of the hockey community rallied together to support him through this difficult time.

"We are at a loss for words. A pain like no other. Our son, Dawson Jenner was stillborn on March 31st, 2024 🕊 While this pain is like nothing we've experienced before, it's also shown us the immense love we have to give.


As heartbroken as we are, we are incredibly grateful to be his parents and look forward to holding him again one day in heaven. We are thankful and feel blessed for the outpouring of love and support from our family and friends. We appreciate everyone respecting our privacy as we navigate this extremely difficult time. 💙

Love, the Jenners."








No update has been given concerning his return with the team, but considering that the season ends in two weeks, and the Blue Jackets are in the last position in the Eastern Conference, don't be surprised if he doesn't come back at all. Hockey is not the most important thing in the world, and he must take all the time he needs to be with his loved ones.
