Tampa Bay Lightning center Dominic Moore
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - The wife of former Tampa Bay Lightning and San Jose Sharks forward Dominic Moore has died.
The Sharks say Katie Moore died Monday after a nine-month battle with liver cancer.
Dominic Moore missed San Jose's final two playoff games last April to be with his wife shortly after she was diagnosed with a rare form of liver cancer.
Dominic Moore was acquired by San Jose last February in a deal with Tampa Bay. He is currently an unrestricted free agent.
Moore played on the Lightning team that was one victory away from the Stanley Cup Finals in 2011.
The Sharks offered their condolences to the Moore family and called Katie Moore's courage during the illness an inspiration.
