TSN's Rick Westhead searches for Joe Murphy, a Stanley Cup champion who disappeared after his illustrious hockey career ended.
Murphy speaks about the struggles he’s faced since the end of his NHL career, and how the league has treated him since he left. He's open about his drug use after the game. He also talks about the types of prescription medications that he received while he was in the NHL, given by teams and team trainers so that he wouldn't miss ice time. And he wonders himself whether the drugs that he took to remain an active NHL player, may have exacerbated his situation.
