Former Goalie Don Edwards Fights To Keep Parents' Killer Behind Bars

"We all went through hell and we're still going through hell."

That's how former NHL goaltending star Don Edwards understandably sums up his and his family's life the past number of years.

Chris Doucette of the Toronto Sun tells the incredible (and incredibly disturbing) story the Edwards family has had to deal with. A man was convicted of killing his parents and attempted murder of his sister, and yet somehow the criminal has been in a minimal security corrections center and is now getting day passes to participate in a work program.

It is a must read story that will leave any Canadian - hockey fan or not - shaking their head at our penal system.
