When you have experienced the pinnacle of your profession as Brent had done winning the NHL Stanley Cup in 2010, it is difficult to transition to a new career post-the NHL experience.

The article is titled "Letting his guard down about dyslexia struggles helped blueliner Brent Sopel find purpose", written by Emily Kaplan.
