NHL Hall of Famer Dickie Moore has been seriously injured in a car accident, reported the Montreal Gazette on Wednesday.

The 75-year-old Montreal Canadiens Hall of Fame member, suffered neck, spine and rib injuries when his car was hit by a truck this past Sunday. He was trapped in the car for 45 minutes before rescue.

Moore spent parts of 14 seasons in the NHL, mostly with the Canadiens but also skated for the Toronto Maple Leafs and St. Louis Blues. He won six Stanley Cups as a member of the Canadiens and the team retired the No. 12, worn by both Moore and Yvan Cournoyer, last season.

The left winger played 719 regular season games, scoring 261 goals and 608 points.

Hall of Famer Dickie Moore recovering

MONTREAL (CP) - Hockey Hall of Fame left-winger Dickie Moore was removed from intensive care Wednesday, three days after suffering serious injuries in a car accident.

Moore, 75, suffered multiple injuries, including fractures to his neck and lower back, when his car was struck by a truck while pulling out of a restaurant parking lot during an intense rainstorm Sunday.

His daughter, Lianne Moore, said he was in great pain, but he was not paralysed and there was no damage to his spinal cord.

''Thank God he's OK,'' she said.

She said the two-time NHL scoring champion with the Montreal Canadiens had received visits at Montreal General Hospital from former teammates, including Jean Beliveau and Dick Duff, and that ''his hockey buddies are cheering him on.''

''He's quite pleased about that. He's so tough, it's unbelievable.''

She said her father also had seven broken ribs, injured his left knee and had some internal bleeding.

But his condition was improving under the care of a medical team that includes Canadiens team doctor David Mulder, she added.

Moore was leaving the Chez Cora breakfast restaurant in the suburbs west of Montreal when the accident occurred. He was trapped in his car for 45 minutes before being rescued.

The Montreal native won six Stanley Cups with the Canadiens from 1951 to 1963 and won scoring titles in 1957-58 and 1958-59, when his 96 points set a league record at the time.

Montreal retired the No. 12 jersey of Moore and former captain Yvan Cournoyer last season.

He also played one season each for the Toronto Maple Leafs and St. Louis Blues late in his career.

After his retirement as a player, Moore built a successful construction equipment rental company.

I heard this some time back (then, again, this topic was made some time back).

Looks like he's doing much better now, so that's good to hear. :)
