CHICAGO – Fans here in the Windy City remember when he was playing on the Blackhawks’ first Stanley Cup title in 49 years.
Brent Sopel was a part of the 2009-2010 group that brought the elusive title home and ushered in a dynasty for the majority of the next decade. But once hockey ended, the defenseman had to come face-to-face with a major battle he’s had during his entire life: Dyslexia.
Following his playing career, Sopel has dealt head-on with the disorder, and as part of that, has started a foundation along with participating in a documentary on his journey.
Lauren Magiera talked about it all with Sopel for GN Sports on Friday night and you can watch her story in the video above.
