‘I’ve learned how to honor emotions in the moment and let them come up and through me and out of me, and a lot of times that’s through crying’ he said.

‘And you know me … I played pro hockey for 15 years, threw dudes into dudes. I’m a dude. But I love being able to release emotion truthfully, organically, in the moment [and] not suppress it,’ he added.

Laich said that it’s taken awhile for him to get to this place with his emotions, adding he often felt, ‘unemotional in personal relationships.”

The hockey star admitted that he previously tried to ‘stuff’ his emotions, though he realized that wasn’t working.

‘It’s liberating to allow and give yourself the grace and the capacity to just allow that emotion to live and come out. And then it’s like, ‘Oh, god. That felt great,”‘ he shared. 

‘I’ve just learned that, and it is so liberating to honor those emotions and let them come to life. And then they don’t persist with you,’ he added.
