Corey Hirsch Shares His Darkness
Corey Hirsch has penned a very personal and vulnerable article on The Players Tribune. He reveals how much he struggled in the dark during his early 20s. This is a gripping story and well worth the read.
Here’s a snippet:
“On November 13, I pulled our trainer aside before the morning skate — right in the tunnel under Nassau Coliseum — and I told him the truth.

He looked at me in complete shock. And I can understand why. In the ’90s, you simply didn’t talk about mental health. It wasn’t that people in hockey didn’t care about one another.
