Fron Darren Dreger of TSN,
Sources tell TSN Theoren Fleury is attempting a comeback and wants to play in the NHL again.
After playing senior hockey last season, Fleury decided in February he was fit enough to give the NHL another try, so he hired a personal trainer and has been working diligently since.
Those close to him say he didn’t leave the National Hockey League the way he wanted, which is fueling his desire to return.
The 41-year-old has been sober for almost four years and has been skating daily in Calgary in the hope that an NHL team is willing to invite him to training camp.
added 8:14pm, On March 13th 2009 on AM 640 Toronto, Theo Fluery was interviewed on the Bill Watters Show w/ Greg Brady about if he had any interest in making a comeback after good friend Claude Lemieux attempted one. Watters informs Theo that he should give it a try!! Theo responds with “It has crossed his mind, and You never know!”
Thanks to AM640 in Toronto for passing on the audio to KK.
added 9:28pm, from Eric Francis of the Calgary Sun (Saturday edition),
You can bet everyone around him is supporting his decision to take one last run at the big time.
However, like most athletes, somewhere along the way he’s lost sight of the reality of father time.
