Ep. 64 – Surviving the NHL with Daniel Carcillo STRONG ATHLETE LIFE

    • Health & Fitness

In this episode, former NHL hockey player Daniel Carcillo shares his powerful story about how he barely made it out of professional sports alive after suffering from multiple traumatic concussions, substance abuse and self destruction.
This is the most powerful episode we have ever recorded on the show and it's an important story to hear for both players and parents, and even coaches, who have aspiring dreams to make it to the pros – seemingly at any cost. 
The road to the top is not always paved with sunshine and rainbows and the terrible coaching and abusive traditions that are often the gateway to the pros needs to stop.
A big thank you to Daniel for being so open and honest about his journey of glory and devastation to where he is now in his life as an advocate for former NHL players who are suffering from post-concussion syndrome and mental health issues.
Enjoy!
