Steve Montador, former Flames defenceman, dies at age 35: reports

Defenceman Steve Montador, who played 571 NHL regular-season games and played a part in the Calgary Flames reaching the 2004 Stanley Cup final, has died, several media outlets reported Sunday. He was 35.

Montador suffered a concussion in February 2012 and a year later talked openly and candidly about the injury and subsequent depression.

In August 2013, Montador signed a contract with Medvescak Zagreb in Russia's Kontinental Hockey League and never played again in the NHL. He last played in the league for Chicago in the 2011-12 season, scoring five goals and 14 points in 52 games.

In 10 NHL seasons, Montador compiled 33 goals and 98 assists for 131 points and 807 penalty minutes.
