Have you heard what former NHL standout Keith Primeau is planning?
The former Red Wings, Hurricanes and Flyers center Keith Primeau, who retired in 2006 from the effects of multiple concussions through his career, will donate his brain to the Center for the Study of Traumatic Encephalopathy upon his death.
"I hope to bring urgently needed awareness and recognition to the consequences of repetitive head trauma," Primeau said in a statement released by Boston University's school of medicine. "We owe it to the kids playing sports."
Here's a good read on Primeau's continuing battles with concussions.
Three other hockey players have also committed the same fate for their brains - Noah Welch, Ryan VandenBussche, and Steve Heinze.
