As if the tragic death of former Pittsburgh Penguins player Adam Johnson was not enough for his loved ones to handle, another piece of news was discovered.

Johnson's secret was one that re-broke the heart of his girlfriend



Ryan Wolfe, 24, has been dating Johnson for more than three years. Like the rest of us, she learned of that Johnson suffered a devastating and fatal neck injury when he was cut by the skate blade of an opposing player.

What she also learned was that Johnson had intentions of proposing to her.


Johnson had purchased the engagement ring before they flew to England for the start of the 2023-24 hockey season. According to two close friends of Johnson's family, he intended to propose to her.

The ring was found by Wolfe in the apartment the two shared in England

"His grandmother told me that he had shown her (Johnson's grandmother) the ring before he left and he was going to propose at some point," said Scott Pionk, whose son played college hockey with Johnson.

Another friend of the Johnson family who spoke on the condition of anonymity, confirmed Pionk's account of the engagement ring.

"I'm sure she had an inkling," Pionk said of Wolfe.
