NEWMARKET, Ontario (AP) -Former NHL player Rob Ramage was found guilty Wednesday of impaired driving causing death and four other charges in connection with a wreck that killed former Chicago Blackhawks star Keith Magnuson.
Magnuson died Dec. 15, 2003, when a rental car driven by Ramage slammed head-on into another vehicle.
The prosecution said scientific evidence showed Ramage had up to four times the legal blood-alcohol limit at the time of the crash, though none of the hundreds of people at an earlier reception could say he had a single drink.
The defense claimed blood and urine tests were flawed and that any smell of beer came from cans that exploded in the accident.
Ramage spent 15 years in the NHL with eight teams, winning Stanley Cup titles with the Calgary Flames and Montreal Canadiens.
