Boyd's father satisfied with QMJHL's player safety changes
The father of a 16-year-old Nova Scotia boy who died while trying out for a Quebec Major Junior Hockey League team says the family is satisfied with changes made by the league to increase safety for players.
Stephen Boyd says it's important that the extensive safety protocol changes announced today will benefit players.
His son Jordan was taking part in tryouts with the Acadie-Bathurst Titan in New Brunswick when he collapsed on the ice in August 2013 and couldn't be revived.
An autopsy later revealed that the young player had an undiagnosed heart condition.
