Former NHL player Todd Ewen died Saturday at the age of 49.
The St. Louis Blues confirmed the Canadian athlete's passing on Twitter but did not release a cause of death. On Monday, however, a spokesperson for the St. Louis County Police Department confirmed to E! News that Ewen's death was being investigated as a suicide and it appears that he died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. This is still an active investigation but no foul play is suspected.
