As we've learned, especially recently, some things are bigger than hockey. 

The latest sad news involves Minnesota Wild goalie Devan Dubnyk. 

The Wild's starting goalie revealed the information to reporters during a recent scrum as he said his wife as been going through some serious medical issues and what makes it scary is that doctors don't know what's going on. 

Dubnyk added that he's not sure what his status will be for the upcoming games and will meet with head coach Bruce Boudreau.
