In an eloquent and blunt op-ed piece for the Players' Tribune, Rich Clune opened up about his struggle with addiction.

"Between the ages of 15-24, I was not here. I was checked out. I did not exist," said Clune as his relationships with fear, alcohol, and cocaine worsened. "Rich Clune the pro hockey player existed. He got in over 150 fights and drove drunk and chased women and laughed and cried and lived in oblivion. But Rich Clune, the kid who loved art and film and read books and thought deeply about life, that guy was just not around. He couldn’t cope with the pressure." Until he decided to, that is. Clune is now five years sober. "If you’re reading this and think you might have a problem, do not be ashamed," Clune implored. "Reach out to a friend or a teammate, or find a professional who can help. If I can ask for help, so can you."
