A former Duluth East hockey player is hospitalized after a serious accident on Island Lake.

Kerr was located and airlifted to Essentia Health St. Mary’s Medical Center where family says he underwent successful surgery for a broken bone in his neck.

His CaringBridge site reported his condition Monday as stable in ICU.

Kerr most recently played the past two seasons with the Dubuque Fighting Saints.
