  • Greg Johnson (former Predator) Dies

    This was unexpected. 48 years old, is basically my age. I wonder what happened.

    I read it was a suicide. Greg sustained a lot of concussions during his career and suffered from CTE because of it. Poor guy.

        Oh boy. Add another to the long list of NHL players who have committed suicide from CTE. This is why if my son sustains one more concussion, I'm pulling the plug on him from playing.

          How many has he had?

          My son had one, if he had a 2nd that was going to be it. Just not worth it.

              Yeah I agree with you, one more and it's over.
