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.
