Former NHL players seek damages for concussions
Dan LaCouture was admittedly a better baseball player growing up, but hockey always meant something more to him.
The son of a high school coach in Natick, Mass., his mother often picked him up from elementary school to take him to the rink to watch his father conduct practice. Mr. LaCouture had a poster Mario Lemieux plastering the door of his childhood bedroom — a poster he had the hockey legend sign when Mr. LaCouture joined the Penguins in 2000.
“It was hard for me not to find my way on to the ice,” he said.
