Brittanie Cecil was the first hockey fan to be killed as a result of actual on-ice play, when, during a Columbus Blue Jackets game, a deflected puck hit her on the head.

Because of her death, the NHL ordered all arenas to have mesh nets over the plexiglass panes, which are themselves over the boards.
