I bring terrible news to the Hockey’s Future family our Edmonton Oilers team Editor Kim Gernack passed away.
Known as Redtwilight on the message boards he brought a sense of common decency and mutual respect to our happy hockey-loving band of rogues. I will personally miss insight and passion for the game and the true appreciation he showed for everyone’s hard work.
I spoke to Kim late last week from his bed at the University Hospital in Edmonton and he was upbeat and looking forward to coming back to chat with his boys on the Edmonton page.
At this time I would like to pay our respects to his lovely wife Marilyn and his entire family.
Kim’s name will forever stay as the Editor of the Edmonton Oilers team page for the existence of this publication.
I would like to officially announce that the Hockey’s Future charity that is presently being built to help under privileged children play hockey will be named after Kim Gernack.
Please send all condolences to the Edmonton Oilers message board.
Asst. Managing Editor/Director of Media Relations
