The sad case of Theoren Fleury has been well documented over the years...
Too small to play in the NHL, he defied the critics and became an offensive force for the Calgary Flames in the 90's, scoring 455 goals in 19 seasons in the big leagues, as well as a gold medal with Team Canada in 2002. Sadly, Fleury's life spiraled out of control as a result of his addiction to alcohol and in the end, was forced out of the league by suspension after suspension.
It seems that Fleury has turned his life around and is well on his way to recovery, giving thanks to God, his wife, and a 12-step program that saved his life. You can read the full article here. Thanks to Bill for passing this along.
