"We are shocked and deeply saddened to learn of Andrew Burkle's passing and offer our deepest condolences to Ron and his family", said Penguins co-owner Mario Lemieux. Here's what we know.

In a statement, the Burkle family told People that Andrew was a "young man full of life" who will be "greatly missed".

Ron Burkle is the co-owner of the Pittsburgh Penguins and runs the private equity firm The Yucaipa Companies, which invested in the now-defunct Relativity Media and also was part of the consortium that originally planned to buy The Weinstein Company.

There was no immediate word on cause or manner of death in the case.

Andrew Burkle reportedly died early Monday.

Police and fire personnel were sent to the 100 block of Spalding Drive about 7:25 p.m. Monday on a report of an unconscious male inside a residence, and that person was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Beverly Hills Police Department, which did not release the man's name. Everyone he met commented on his humble demeanor and hard work'. He teamed with business partner Andrew Alter to create a production company, In Good Company Films, according to Heavy.com. Most recently, Burkle served as associate producer for the 2019 film Airplane Mode. Upon arriving at the scene, emergency crews "determined the male was deceased", People reported.

On Father's Day last year Andrew posted a photo with Ron and John with the Stanley Cup after it was won by the Penguins the year before. He is one of the smartest people in the world, he's kind, loving, and incredibly generous'. And for those of you that don't, I hope you have someone in your life that has had the same impact on your life as he has on mine.

The producer is survived by Ron and his mother, Janet Duitson, as well as siblings Carrie Harr and John Burkle.
