Joe Murphy was the No. 1 overall pick of the 1986 NHL Draft. He won the Stanley Cup with the Edmonton Oilers in 1990. He made many millions of dollars over a 15-year NHL career.
But in 1991, everything began to unravel when he suffered a concussion that he never truly recovered from.
Now, the former San Jose Sharks winger has lost it all.
TSN senior correspondent Rick Westhead talks about Finding Murph, his new book about the NHL’s concussion problem and Murphy’s descent into homelessness.
