A New Career For Boyd Devereaux

from Sean Fitz-Gerald of the National Post,

Boyd Devereaux was glued to the screen.

“These are some of the best shots,” his video editor said.

A single light bulb hung from the ceiling above the two men. It was a bedroom they have converted into an editing suite, with two screens, two chairs and posters from three music acts. An old National Hockey League Players’ Association gym bag was off in a corner.

“You got the right angle, man,” the editor said, reviewing the footage again.

Devereaux spent most of his first career working in much larger rooms; including the two years he spent playing alongside Sundin with the Toronto Maple Leafs. This room, inside his brother-in-law’s downtown apartment, is what he hopes will start a second act.

The 33-year-old has started a production company, Waking Sound Productions, and is in the process of producing a documentary on Sundin’s recent immortalization by the Leafs, who raised his number to the rafters last weekend. Devereaux said it is for Leafs TV.

Broken Neck Sidelines Boyd Devereaux

from the CP at the Globe and Mail,

Former NHLer Boyd Devereaux will have a lot to think about in the weeks ahead as he recuperates from a terrifying broken neck.

Competing at the Spengler Cup in Switzerland through the holidays, Devereaux and the rest of the Canadian team were off to a roaring start.

The Kitchener, Ont., resident and former Edmonton Oilers and Toronto Maple Leafs centre was being double-shifted by Craig MacTavish when he entered the offensive zone and attempted to collect a loose puck in a Dec. 28 game against host-team Davos.

That’s when Davos blue-liner Beat Forster caught Devereaux with his head down.

Devereaux crumpled to the ice, but was helped to his feet and assisted to the bench. He soon noticed a tingling sensation in his arms.

Devereaux Enjoying The Ride

from the Globe and Mail,

“When you’re down you sit back and wonder what’s ahead, but that has made my time here that much more enjoyable,” said Devereaux, who has a modest two-game point streak going. “With Toronto, as a player on the outside, you always wonder what it is like to play in this hockey-mad city. It’s turned into a special experience.

“It’s been a crazy ride sometimes, but I’m so thankful to be playing here in this city where it is exciting every day, win or lose. It’s a challenge, but a challenge you relish daily.”
