Oliver Kylington on why he missed all of last season

Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun: Before training camp started last season, Calgary Flames defenseman Oliver Kylington returned to Sweden for what the team called personal reasons, missing the entire sieason.

Kylington told HockeyNews.se that he needed to take care of his mental health, which he did, and is ready to return back to the Flames this season.

“It was a very challenging year for me personally,” Kylington told HockeyNews, according to a translation. “These are things that have been going on in the family for many years but which escalated to get worse and there were mental and psychological problems I suffered from.

“I think I dealt with the problem like maybe everyone else does, by just sweeping it under the rug and putting the lid on. But for me, it led to mental illness and I felt very bad about how I dealt with my problems and almost went into the wall and felt that now it’s enough … I needed to face these problems we had as a family and today I am incredibly grateful for this journey I started and then had to finish.”
