Here's an interesting take by former NHL'er Chris 'Knuckles' Nilan...
Points out how his depression didn't come from the game, or the fighting - it came from substance abuse.
Oh, it was the drugs and the booze that made him depressed, that's OK then *facepalm*
So the next obvious question is - why was he on the drugs and the booze? In fact why do so many enforcers have problems with drugs and alcohol? Why is drug addiction and alcoholism so much more prevalent amongst them than regular NHL players?
