It's so rare for a young guy to shoulder the #1 goalie spot on a club. Must be a lot of pressure. Who knows what that kind of pressure results in?

True. I've met quite a few guys who were gunning for the NHL, and cocaine, along with heavy alcohol consumption was apparent. 


They'd played in the ECHL and AHL. 


Like you said, the pressure, but also the newfound money, plus not knowing how to manage that money. 


Not making light of the person, but that combination can effect anyone, if you can't keep your wits about you.

Glad he's getting the help he needs.  Plenty of guys who got through the program who I'm sure would be more than willing to offer him support if he asks as well.


Rooting for him to make a full recovery on and off the ice.

Corey Hirsch would be very pleased with him getting the help.


Goalies face so much pressure with very few jobs out there, but I think Knight is giving himself the best chance right now by entering the program.
