Former NHL superstar Theoren Fleury wants a face-to-face meeting with the man who made his life a living hell for more than three decades.
He says speaking to former hockey coach and convicted sex offender Graham James about the abuse that began when he was just 13 is the next step in the healing process he began in 2009 with the publication of his autobiography, Playing With Fire.

"People are flabbergasted that you could get to that point of forgiveness in your life. That's why my life is so f-----g amazing, because I've gotten there. Nothing has a hold of me anymore. Nothing. That slate is clean."
