Bobby Ryan was welcomed as a true hero in Ottawa after a break of a few months that has allowed him to restore order in his thoughts.
Struggling with panic attacks, and problems of alcohol consumption, the attacker Senators has not graced the rinks of the national hockey League between November 16 and February 25.
On 27 February, he delivered a memorable performance by scoring a hat trick in the face of the Vancouver Canucks, at home. The winger does not want to view the images of this amazing night as they plunged in a state of very emotional.
In a much better state of mind despite the confinement, it is of the opinion that he had learned from his more difficult times to deal with the crisis of the COVID-19 that is rampant currently.
“It would have been hard to get by now if I had not been seeking help at the beginning of the month of December, he confided to TSN on Thursday. I couldn’t imagine being isolated with my family. It would not have been good for my marriage, because I was not in good provisions.”
“One of the things I finally learned in the last four and a half months, it is that there are few things that you can control. What there is outside of my limits will be when the same, continued the American. It is important to try to stay in this bubble. I can’t control the situation. I can’t control my thoughts.”
Crossing in extremis
The Ryan family has had the chance to get in Idaho, where she resides during the crisis, since it has crossed the border during the last day on which transits non-essential were allowed between Canada and the United States, at the end of the month of march.
The veteran, however, says to have had a fear of transmitting the virus to his family, who had been aboard a flight that was bringing him and his teammates to stay in California. Remember that five players and a member of the staff of the “Sense” have been tested positive to the COVID-19 by the following.
Before returning to his family, the player has had to withdraw for a few time in Ottawa. “We knew we were exposed in this aircraft, he mentioned. But I went to home health. […] I’m a little bit felt like a bad parent by going home immediately after landing of the device.”
Fortunately for all the family, person had received a positive diagnosis and the couple’s two children, aged 2 and 4 years, are in perfect health.
At the age of 33, Ryan was of the opinion that he should start preparing for next season sooner rather than later. If the action starts during the summer, the Senators are not insured to jump on the ice, the ones who were far away from a playoff spot at the break.
