EP 44 Hockey, Addiction, and Gratitude (with guest Brantt Myhres)

By Heather Ross

The Better Me Podcast delves into how people navigate through life’s challenges and live as the best people they can be. Coach, writer, and educator Heather M. Ross chats with guests about how they’ve gotten past life’s bumps in the road, from potholes to sinkholes. She also shares her own stories of living with a mental illness while striving to pursue her dreams.

Brantt Myhres played for the Tampa Bay Lightning, Philadelphia Flyers, San Jose Sharks, Nashville Predators, Washington Capitals and Boston Bruins. Throughout his career he was suspended four times by the NHL for failing drug tests and was eventually banned from the league for life. After becoming clean and sober and studying substance abuse behavioral health at Mount Royal University in Calgary, Myhres was hired by the Los Angeles Kings in September 2015 as the team’s player assistance director. Brantt joined me on the Better Me Podcast to talk about his new memoir “Pain Killer: A Memoir of Big League Addiction”.
