Denna Laing: Outdoor Women’s Classic ‘Best Day Of My Life,’ Despite Spinal Injury


January 11, 2016

Denna Laing remembers Dec. 31, 2015 as both a personal peak and turning point.

That day, Laing suffered a spinal fracture during the Boston Pride’s 1-1 tie against Les Canadiennes in the Outdoor Women’s Classic at Gillette Stadium. The injury left Laing with limited movement in her arms and no feeling in her legs and appears to have ended her professional hockey career.

Laing, 24, is beginning down her long and uncertain road into the future but she shared a few thoughts Sunday about a day she describes as “the best of her life” in a poignant post on Facebook.

Laing has received an outpouring of support from the hockey community following the injury. Those wishing to donate to her cause can do so by clicking the link below.

Despite her hospitalization and injury, Laing’s love for the sport seems to be as strong as can be.
