A Current Look At Johan Franzen

from Gunnar Nordstrom of expressen,

The concussions destroyed his hockey career.

Then Tre Kronor hero Johan Franzén, 38, was thrown into a darkness of depression and anxiety.

Today he feels better - but struggles with support from his wife Cissi to regain his usual life.

In an exclusive interview with the SportExpress, Johan Franzén talks about the progress, the rage outbreaks, the panic attacks that he kept secret from his teammates and the decision to leave Detroit for Sweden.

- I don't want to be inside these walls. There has been so much anxiety, panic and depression that I want out.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
