Fleury Back In Rehab

E.J. Hradek, of ESPN the Magazine, is reporting that Chicago Blackhawks winger Theoren Fleury has re-entered the active care stage of the NHL’s substance abuse program for the second time. It is unclear at this time whether or not this action is being taken due to a positive drug test, or on a purely voluntary basis.

Fleury raised some eyebrows last week by skipping a practice without informing the Chicago coaching staff or management. It later came out that Fleury’s father was undergoing prostate surgery.

His emotional and substance abuse problems have been well documented ever since he checked himself into a rehab facility in February of last year, when he was with the New York Rangers.

Like the guy or hate him, we should all wish Fleury the best of luck in straightening out his life.
