    A players salary that's forfeited once in the program is used to help fund the program per this in the CBA:
    47.12 Program Funding. Any salary forfeited by a Player by reason of a suspension imposed
    pursuant to Section 47.7 will be utilized to help defer the costs of both the Program and the
    SABH Program. All costs of administering the Program, including the costs associated with
    mandatory no-notice testing, shall be the responsibility of the NHL.
    However I think that's for PED's. Article 47 is "Performance Enhancing Substances Program". However, 47.4(b) Says "Drugs of Abuse". So I think drugs are also covered under Article 47.

    Anywayyss...Ryan's Salary forfeited due to this is gonna be good for the program?

    He left practice early on Monday. So guess he felt like he hit his rock bottom. Glad he's entered the program. Guys had injuries the last few yrs, wouldn't be a shocker if he had an opioid problem

    I would think at this point the Player Assistance program is not limited to drug use. I could be wrong though.

    It's typically used for treatment of players and their families health issues, including substance abuse. So all health issues, including players family members are treated through the program. So mental health is covered under it too.

    It takes a big man to admit when you have a problem. Good on him for trying to right the ship and get his life on track.
