Dangerous driving trial begins for former NHL player Rob Ramage

Ramage is charged with five criminal offences in the December 2003 crash in Woodbridge, Ont., that killed former Chicago Blackhawks defenceman Keith Magnuson.

The 48-year-old Ramage is alleged to have been impaired and driving dangerously when the car he was operating crashed.

At his arraignment last week, Ramage pleaded not guilty to all charges.

The trial is expected to last three to four weeks.

During his 15-year NHL career, Ramage played for eight teams, winning Stanley Cups with the Calgary Flames and Montreal Canadiens, and captaining the Toronto Maple Leafs.
