Keith, born and raised in Eagle Vail, Colorado, is a big hearted, fun loving, hockey enthusiast. He grew up playing hockey in Vail, continued at the collegiate level at The University of Oklahoma, and currently plays Right Wing for the Vail Yeti Hockey team.
During the home game against the Breckenridge Vipers, on February 9th, a Vipers player made a malicious hit to Keith's face. The hit caused several severe injuries to Keith's mouth and face:
- Fractured nasal cavaties
- Fractured jaw
- Multiple teeth severed from roots & nerves
- Multiple teeth knocked out
Keith is facing multiple surgeries to reconstruct his face, jaw, and teeth.
Each player enters into the league and is registered with USA Hockey. As a registered member, Keith was automatically enrolled into the USA Hockey insurance program. For Keith, this means USA Hockey will be his primary dental insurance provider. All medical expenses must be paid for up front before submitting to USA Hockey for reimbursement.
This is where Keith needs your help. All donated funds will help Keith pay for his up front medical expenses.
After expenses are submitted to USA hockey and Keith is reimbursed, he will donate the money to the Vail Junior Hockey program.
Please donate any amount you feel comfortable with, to help Keith Denton pay for his upcoming dental expenses.
