Ramage faces additional charge in Magnuson's death



NEWMARKET, Ont. -- Retired NHL defenseman Rob Ramage was charged Thursday with driving with a blood-alcohol level over the legal limit in the crash that killed former Chicago Blackhawks player and coach Keith Magnuson.

Ramage had already been charged with impaired driving causing death and dangerous driving causing death. His next court date was set for March 4.

The 56-year-old Magnuson was a passenger in the car Ramage was driving Dec. 15, 2003, when their vehicle crossed into the oncoming lane and struck an SUV, which was then hit by another car, police said.
