Pittsburgh native Kevin Kenny may not be playing the game he loves for quite some time, but don't think for a second he isn't in the hearts and minds of everyone in the hockey community.

The career path for the 20-year-old forward took an unfortunate detour this month when he crashed into the boards during a game and sustained a spinal cord injury.

Since the accident Nov. 16 while playing in a North American Tier 3 Hockey League game for the Pittsburgh Three Rivers Vengeance against the Cleveland Jr. Lumberjacks, Kenny has undergone two successful spinal surgeries.

John Kenny, Kevin's father, released a statement Monday to inform the public that "Kevin has sustained a spinal cord injury and his prognosis is guarded."

Devils' Zajac: Stadium Series should bring playoff feel

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEWARK, N.J. -- When the New Jersey Devils and New York Rangers face off at Yankee Stadium on Sunday, Jan. 26 as part of the Coors Light NHL Stadium Series, fans can expect a playoff-like atmosphere on a grand scale.

At least that's how Devils forward Travis Zajac would prefer to label the matchup scheduled for 12:30 p.m. ET (NBC, CBC).

"These are playoff games every time we play against each other and no matter where the game might be," Zajac told NHL.com. "Especially now since we only play them five times a year. They're special games and we're both battling right now to make the playoffs and I assume it'll be that way in January as well."


Stamkos shows progress but won't rush rehabilitation

Monday, 11.25.2013 / 2:24 PM / NHL Insider

Lonnie Herman - NHL.com Correspondent

TAMPA -- Steven Stamkos walked into the media room in the Tampa Bay Times Forum on Monday, and he did it without crutches, without a cast or a walking boot and with only a barely perceptible limp.

It was the sort of progress from a broken right tibia sustained less than two weeks ago that few expected, even Stamkos.

"The thing that shocked me the most was, you think of a broken leg and most people are in a cast for 6-8 weeks," Stamkos said. "For this specific injury, because it did break almost in half, it allowed them to put a rod in there. With the rod there it's almost full strength. The bone just has to heal. It hasn't even been two weeks and I've been walking on it without any support for the last two days."

The recovery seems swift, even for someone in Stamkos' physical condition, but there were some difficult days.
