Statement From Shawn Horcoff

The National Hockey League Players’ Association is releasing the following statement on behalf of Shawn Horcoff.

“While recovering from an injury I suffered this past fall, I tried a treatment that I believed would help speed up the healing process.

Although I was unaware that this treatment was not permitted under NHL rules, that is no excuse whatsoever. I should have done my research and I should have checked with the NHL/NHLPA Performance Enhancing Substances Program’s doctors. I accept full responsibility for my actions, and I am sorry.

Throughout my entire career, I have felt genuinely blessed and honored to play the great game of hockey, and I regret the impact that this may have on my team and our fans.

I look forward to the day I return to the ice for the playoff push.”
