Kea, born Adriaan Jozef Kea, in Weesp, Netherlands played in the NHL for 10 seasons with the Atlanta Flames and St. Louis Blues. He also played in the EHL, WHL and CHL. Ed was the uncle of Joe Nieuwendyk. While playing in the CHL in 1983, Kea suffered severe head trauma when he hit his head on the ice. The injury left him disabled. Since the injury occurred in the CHL, NHL benefits did not apply leaving his family with many financial struggles. Kea died by accidental drowning in the swimming pool of his family's summer home in September of 1999 at 51 years of age.

Our consignor went to a hockey game every night and had all autographs signed personally. The photo and signature is beautiful.
