The family and friends of former Islanders player Chris Simon are receiving condolences from the New York Islanders. You would see why Chris was adored by his teammates and the spectators that came to see him play every game if you got the chance to watch him play.

This illustrates another account of a well-known enforcer ending their own life in order to get away from a personal problem. Simon becomes one of the three former enforcers who have died by suicide: Wade Belak, Rick Rypien, and Derek Boogaard.

Given Simon’s history of enforcing the game, it is possible that CTE contributed to his demise. CTE was discovered in the other former participants.

“In a few weeks, I’m planning on doing a Chris Simon episode where his life & career are celebrated. If any of Chris’ teammates, coaches or even opponents are reading this & have a story or stories to share, I would love to have you on the show. Shoot me a message & we’ll go from there.” Coliseum Chronicles: the Penalty Box-Podcast said on Facebook.
