Former NHL player Greg Johnson died of apparent suicide, according to report  1 Month ago

Former NHL player Greg Johnson died as a result of a likely suicide, police said. 

Per the Detroit News, Johnson was found by his wife around 10 a.m. on July 7 in the storage room of the couple's basement with a gun and a single bullet found near his body, according to the Rochester (Michigan) Police Department. 

Johnson was 48. He played for four teams — Detroit Red Wings, Pittsburgh Penguins, Chicago Blackhawks and Nashville Predators — over a 14-season career. 

"Very sad, obviously, beautiful family," Johnson's longtime agent Tom Laidlaw told USA Today Sports. "He was a fantastic person. Greg was a well-respected man. He and his family, they lived by a certain code: honor and ethics." 

Laidlaw would not comment on the cause of death. 

The Detroit News reported that Johnson's wife, Krisitin, reportedly told police her husband suffered "numerous concussions during his playing career." Concussions have been linked to a brain disease called chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), which is the result of consistent head trauma from blows to the area.

Other former hockey players who battled concussions, such as Rick Rypien, who committed suicide, and Derek Boogard, who died of an accidental overdose.
