Hopefully A New Beginning For Rob Ramage

from Morris Dalla Costa at the Toronto Sun,

The new beginning for the former Knight and 18-year NHL player is also about forging a new direction but in the process, he has to overcome a nightmare of his own making, one he has accepted responsibility for, one he has learned from and without question, a nightmare he hopes will allow him to teach others so they don’t follow the same path.

Ramage is working with the Knights young players. He is not an assistant coach. The best description is that Ramage is helping the Knights with their young defenceman.

He was sentenced to four years in prison after he was convicted of impaired driving causing death in a crash in Woodbridge in 2003. Retired NHL player Keith Magnuson, who was a passenger in Ramage’s car, died and a woman in another vehicle was seriously hurt. Ramage began serving his sentence in July last year. He was paroled in May to a halfway house in London.

Approached Tuesday at the Knights training camp, he simply said he “wasn’t ready to talk (publicly) about what happened.”

He didn’t want any photographs taken and went into a dressing room when the shutters started clicking.
