Alan Thicke clearly made an indelible impression on the hockey community.

The Canadian actor and passionate fan of the game died Tuesday at the age of 69, Thicke's publicist confirmed to Christopher Watson from ABC News.

Thicke died in hospital after suffering a heart attack playing hockey with his son, TMZ reported

Players, clubs, and the league itself offered heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of the late "Growing Pains" star:

I almost believe it's not real. The hockey word lost a great ambassador and I a good friend. Thoughts are with your family @Alan_Thicke

Thicke's connection to hockey ran deep, from his longtime friendship with Wayne Gretzky to numerous appearances at NHL events and even writing and performing "Hockey Sock Rock" with former NHL stars Phil Esposito, Ron Duguay, Pat Hickey, Dave Maloney, and John Davidson.
