Dealing With Paralysis

from the CP via the Edmonton Sun,
It was the kind of accident that hockey players, their families and their coaches have nightmares about - a high-speed, head-first crash into the boards that leaves a strong, young player broken and paralyzed. Players with the University of Moncton's Blue Eagles hockey team were struggling to cope yesterday with the news that their teammate, 24-year-old Sebastien Savage of St. Albert, Ont., is paralyzed from the chest down as the result of an accident during a weekend CIS game in the New Brunswick city. "We all know an accident like this can happen, we just always hope it doesn't happen," head coach Bob Mongrain said in an interview.
