A driver has pleaded not guilty in a fatal crash that killed a Long Beach hockey player in January.

Hagen was skateboarding to his car from the Boards of Cooperative Educational Services in Westbury. He died the next day.
Michel surrendered to police on Monday and has been indicted for criminally negligent homicide.
If convicted, he faces up to four years in prison.
