ESPN Playbook has a story today on former New York Rangers winger Theo Fleury and his quest to become a country music singer.
“It will be different,” he said about returning to the Saddledome with the ice covered by a floor and stage. “I’m excited for the opportunity. I take it very seriously. It hasn’t happened overnight. I’ve gotten to work with some very talented people in the music industry. This is where it led to.”
Fleury was a Ranger from 1999 to 2001 scoring 69 goals and 132 assists.
“When I sat down to write that book, I had no idea what I was getting into with the (discussion of) sexual abuse and addiction,” he said. “I didn’t realize the majority of people struggle with something in their life. If I can inspire people to get help, that is great.”
… I have always liked Theo Fleury and was ecstatic when the Rangers were able to acquire him.
Seems just like yesterday he was skating around the Garden ice. I am very happy that Theo is continuing to follow his dreams. We will definitely be pulling for him here at Ranger Nation and would love to see him on the CMT Awards some day.
Here is a video of Theo Fleury with his guitar and band:
