Vladimir Konstantinov

Six days after defender Vladimir Konstantinov won the 1997 Stanley Cup with the Detroit Red Wings, he was paralyzed when the limousine carrying him and two others home from a celebration party crashed into a tree. The driver of the limousine had a suspended license for drunken driving at the time of the accident. JULIAN H. GONZALEZ, Knight Ridder Tribune
