From Daniel Pearce at The Tillsonburg News,
However, Comper said that VandenBussche’s story “hangs together perfectly” with someone experiencing “post-traumatic amnesia” and with his history of hockey-related concussions, going back to age 12.
Smith also suggested that VandenBussche, who testified Thursday he was on medically prescribed steroids at the time of the incident, “slanted” his responses during the interview to avoid a criminal conviction.
Comper, however, said he found VandenBussche “quite naïve about concussions and what it meant.” Commenting on hockey enforcers, Comper said: “The behaviour you see on the ice typically does not carry over off the ice.”
Earlier in the day, NHL director of hockey operations Colin Campbell testified as a character witness for VandenBussche.
*Former NHL enforcer Ryan VandenBussche is on trial for assault.
