The Washington Capitals confirmed Thursday that goaltender José Théodore’s two-month-old son has died.

The son of the former Montreal Canadien passed away last week, but the cause of death remains unknown.

The Capitals issued a brief statement acknowledging the tragedy.

“We are aware of the heartbreaking news,” said general manager George McPhee. “At this time we ask that everyone respects the privacy of José and his family.”

Théodore and his wife, Stephanie Cloutier, also have a three-year-old daughter, Romy.

A native of Laval, Que., Theodore posted a 32-17-5 record last season, his first with the Capitals. He spent the previous two NHL campaigns as a member of the Colorado Avalanche.
