Kasparaitis On The Comeback Trail

from the New York Times,

Last March, Kasparaitis hit what he called rock bottom. At midseason, he had been banished to the Rangers’ top farm team, the Hartford WolfPack. He had arrived for training camp out of shape after off-season operations and was replaced on the Rangers’ roster by younger players. A 14-year N.H.L. defenseman, Kasparaitis was also going through a painful divorce and said he felt as if he were losing everything.

After a practice in Hartford, he had what he now describes as a panic attack. It alarmed team doctors enough that he was rushed by ambulance to a hospital, where doctors found nothing physically wrong.
