Patrick Bordeleau made a disturbing revelation about the Colorado Avalanche

On Tuesday, the Montreal Canadiens' star goaltender, Carey Price, came out of his silence and admitted that he has been suffering from an addiction problem for quite some time now. This scourge would be much more widespread than we think across the Bettman circuit, if we believe the words that former left winger, Patrick Bordeleau, held on the airwaves of 91,9 Sports.

Bordeleau confided that he himself had suffered from a problem of this kind for many years. Having started using around the age of 16 or 17, when he played for the Val-D'Or Foreurs, Bordeleau saw his problem worsen as he worked his way up to the National Hockey League. "More money, more problems," said the Montreal native.

According to him, more than half of the Colorado Avalanche players were using drugs during his time with the team, and the same is true throughout the Bettman circuit.

Bordeleau also regretfully explained how his tendency to party destroyed the rest days he was given.

"You'd come to practice after two days off where you'd partied and you'd be burned stiff," he said.

The young retiree concluded by saying that if a player as popular and revered as Carey Price had gotten to that point, just imagine how many players could use some help too, but refuse to let their problem come out.
