Kukla's Korner Hockey

A major hockey gear manufacturer and a national safety standards agency are being sued by a Victoria, B.C., family whose son suffered a severe brain injury during a midget hockey game.
Sucha and Cindy More allege the Bauer Nike helmet their son Darren, then 17, was wearing should have protected him against his injury and are seeking $10 million in damages to help care for him.
Darren was hip-checked and flew into the boards during a game in nearby Esquimalt in 2004. He struck the back of his head and fell into a six-week coma.
The Mores’s lawyer, James Macaulay, says six years later Darren still suffers from physical and emotional disabilities and needs 24-hour supervision.
