Todd Fedoruk Trying To Get Back In The Game

from Tim Panaccio of CSNPhilly,

Yet being cut by Tampa was a “blessing in disguise,” Fedoruk said, because his life had been unraveling around him between the stops in Anaheim and Dallas and Minnesota and …

“It needed to happen so I could get myself back on track,” he said.

“I had a history of battling some things away from the game … battled some demons off the ice. I had to re-prioritize my life. After that settled down, I got myself back on track.

“When I was young and growing up … I always had trouble finding my niche where I fit in. After some dark times, I had to go away to a place and learn some things about behavioral issues and some type of diseases I may have.”

Fedoruk had an alcohol addiction that began at the age of 20 in the Western Hockey League.

History of concussions, skull fractures, depression and substance abuse. Call me crazy, but maybe more bare-knuckled combat isn’t necessarily in Fedoruk’s best interests. I seem to remember Fedoruk being somewhat decently compensated for a 4th liner. I’d go back to school or start a business if I was him.
