AP source: Injured hockey player remains in Boston hospital

BOSTON (AP) A person familiar with the situation says a professional women's hockey player hurt when she struck the boards at Gillette Stadium the day before the NHL's Winter Classic remains in the hospital.

The person says Denna Laing of the Boston Pride remained in Massachusetts General Hospital on Thursday after being was taken off the ice on a stretcher Dec. 31.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the family has requested privacy.

Laing's injuries have not been disclosed. The family did not return a call from The Associated Press.

A Gofundme page that raised more than $43,000 was taken down Wednesday at the request of her family, who said ''there will be other trust funds set up to support Denna.''

The 24-year-old Laing, a Marblehead native who played at Princeton University, works as a witness victim advocate at the Essex district attorney's office.
