Amateur hockey player recovering after suffering spinal cord injury during game


PITTSBURGH - An amateur hockey player from Pittsburgh is recovering after suffering a spinal cord injury during a game earlier this month.

Kevin Kenny, who plays for the Three Rivers Vengeance, had his breathing tube removed Tuesday, which will allow him to talk.

“When I talk to the Kennys, they’re just amazed and so thankful for the support of the hockey community.  It’s a special thing,” said Kenny’s coach David Dorsey.

A fund has been set up in Kenny’s name.  So far, more than $33,000 has been raised.
