Steroid use was commonplace for years in hockey dressing rooms, according to retired NHL enforcer Georges Laraque in a new book.

“I have to say here that tough guys weren’t the only players using steroids in the NHL,” Laraque wrote. “It was true that quite a lot of them did use this drug, but other, more talented players did too.

In his new book “The Story of the NHL’s Unlikeliest Tough Guy,” Laraque wrote, “Most of us knew who they were, but not a single player, not even me, would ever think of raising his hand to break the silence and accuse a fellow player.”
