Afternoon Line- Aaron Ward

"When I was in college and I was 17 and 18, I was sexually abused by a doctor who was at the University of Michigan who’s currently publicly under investigation," said Ward, later confirming Dr. Anderson's identity. "Listen, I was married 20 years and my ex-wife did not know that, not an ounce of that. But you come to a place of realizing that when you finally let go of these things and when you share with people, whether you deem them embarrassing, whether you can’t come to grips with the reality, if you take the chance and you verbalize it, you can quickly find out that people can either kind of relate to what you’re going through or they can just be there (for you).

"So as I admit that on radio, that I was sexually abused by a doctor in a professional environment at the University of Michigan and suppressed it forever, it is liberating as you drop these things from your conscience. I spent, since I was 17 years old when that happened, trying to figure out why I gambled since I was 17. That’s not the only reason, but it’s a contributing factor."

-Aaron Ward, former NHL player.  97.1 The Ticket has more on Ward who did an interviw with TSN 690 in Montreal.

Wow.  Bombshell.  I’m a Montrealer and I listen to his hits on the Team here regularly, they are always entertaining. He should do more broadcasting.

Unbelievable. Sad.
