MONTREAL -- The 2-month-old son of Washington Capitals goaltender Jose Theodore has died.

The goalie's sister-in-law made the announcement Thursday during her show on a Montreal-area radio station. Veronique Cloutier, whose sister Stephanie is married to Theodore, did not give details.

"We are aware of the heartbreaking news," Capitals general manager George McPhee said in a statement. "At this time we ask that everyone respects the privacy of Jose and his family."

Theodore and Stephanie Cloutier also have a 3-year-old daughter, Romy.
