TORONTO — Randy Kells says he was fired like a torpedo head-first into the hockey rink boards, shattering his spine and severing his spinal cord.
“It was life-altering,” the 54-year-old Kells said of the accident which occurred in November 1988.
Then 29 years old, Kells jumped to avoid a collision between players. When he landed, his skate hit a rut and he skidded along the ice for 10 feet, colliding with the boards.
