KINGSTON, Ontario (AP) - Former NHL player Rob Ramage has been denied in his bid to be released from a halfway house.

The board's two members split Friday on whether to grant Ramage day parole when he becomes eligible in May. He'll have another hearing before a new board at an undetermined date.

The 52-year-old Ramage has served eight months of his four-year sentence. He was convicted in 2007 of impaired driving in a crash that killed his friend Keith Magnuson, a former NHL player. The two men had just left a funeral reception for another ex-NHL player, Keith McCreary.

Ramage won Stanley Cup rings with Calgary and Montreal. He also played for six other teams and retired after the 1993-94 season.
