TORONTO (April 2, 2009) – After a career cut short by concussions, former NHLer Keith Primeau speaks exclusively to Rogers Sportsnet about his decision to donate his brain to science after he dies.
Hockeycentral Leafs Edition will air the riveting interview between Connected reporter Arash Madani and the 37-year-old Primeau Friday, April 3rd at 6:30 p.m. (ET). Primeau discusses his decision to donate his brain to the Sports Legacy Institute in Massachusetts and how he got to this point.
“I think the beginning of my demise goes back to the playoff situation back in 2000,” said Primeau, who was with the Philadelphia Flyers at the time. “I got laid out at centre ice and got carried off on a stretcher. I stayed overnight in a Pittsburgh hospital, only to return two nights later against New Jersey. And that was ultimately the beginning of my demise.”
