Theo Fleury: Overcoming sexual abuse to now advocating for victims

APTN Face To Face
He’s a Metis kid from a small town who also happens to have an Olympic gold medal and his name on the Stanley Cup. But it hasn’t been all glory for Theo Fleury. The former NHL superstar has battled with addiction and mental health issues. In 2009, he released a best-selling autobiography where he revealed he had been sexually abused by a former coach.

But, Fleury has turned his life around. He is now an advocate for sexual abuse victims and a public speaker. He’s even launched a career in country music. Fleury joins host Dennis Ward on Face to Face to discuss his highs and lows, on and off the ice.
