Sad news from the hockey world today: Herb Brooks, coach of the "Miracle on Ice" 1980 gold medal USA hockey team (and last year's silver medalists in Salt Lake City), has died in a car crash. (ESPN.com)

In addition to his storied NCAA and NHL career, he's enshrined in the United States (USHockeyHall.com) and international Hockey Halls of Fame.

USAHockey.com had some nice things to say about him, too.

Herb Brooks was 66 years old...may he rest in peace.

Real tragic and sad news. I heard he turned down the Rangers head coaching position not so long ago so he can spend time with his family.
