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."

The Predators are likley to buy out the contract of winger Richard Clune.

He was placed on waivers this past week and after playing in 62 forgettable games with the AHL Milwaukeee Admirals this past season, his time in the Nashville organization may have come to an end. No fantasy ramifications here.

Richard Clune reached out to Washington's Patrick Wey after he gave him a beating in a fight on Sunday.

"I reached out to the kid on Washington just to express the fact that I hope he's OK and it wasn't my intention to hurt him," said Clune, who sent a text message. "He was the one kind of engaging me, and I had no idea who he was. I don't even look at the other team's roster before the game. I just see the names they write on the board. The kid said he was OK." Clune has 152 penalty minutes in 52 games this season and he's an experienced fighter. Wey was participating in his first NHL bout, so it was a mismatch from the beginning.

Richard Clune collected a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the New York Rangers.

His first goal of the season, which came late in the first period, held up as the game winner. Clune probably would've been a healthy scratch Tuesday if Craig Smith wasn't feeling under the weather.
