INJURY
Bergeron was playing ice hockey for the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League's Shawinigan Cataractes in August 1987 when he got involved in a fight during a training camp scrimmage. In the tussle, his helmet came off and his unprotected head hit the ice when he fell. The impact broke Bergeron's neck and left him completely paralysed. (CBC, 17 Apr 2009)
