  • Bobby Ryan On Leave

    NEW YORK/TORONTO - The National Hockey League Players' Association (NHLPA) and the National Hockey League (NHL) announced today that forward Bobby Ryan of the Ottawa Senators will be away from the team while taking part in the NHL/NHLPA player assistance program.

    There will be no further comment.

    Best of luck to him, I hope he's able to use the help. Bobby had a difficult childhood and has a family of his own now to care for. From all accounts I've heard, he's a great person off the ice.

      Hm. So are we to automatically assume it is substance abuse? Not sure what else it might be. Mental illness / depression?

        In the past the NHLPA has specified "substance abuse" program if that was the issue. I don't know if they've made an internal change with that or not?

          I tend to believe its more about mental illness/depression than substance abuse.

            As juvenile and crass as it may sound, wouldn't it be funny if he checked into rehab with an eating addiction.

              It would certainly be curious. Do you think there's any chance that that's what it could be?

                Haha well anything is possible but that seems a bit far fetched. Just would be funny with all the criticism that he's out of shape and such.

                  I think it's depression. I heard from a guy on my hockey team that apparently he had a family member that died and he was taking it super bad. Now this is rumour but I wouldn't be surprised if that's what it is.
