Islanders prospect Linus Söderström opens up about his Asperger’s and ADHD to Swedish news
In a televised interview with Swedish news outlet TV4, Islanders goalie prospect Linus Söderström spoke about having Asperger Syndrome and attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder, and how the afflictions have helped shaped his life and hockey career.
“I have had it my whole life – my Asperger’s and ADHD. I am who I am because of it. I would not have been the person nor ice hockey player that I am if I didn’t have this,” Söderström said in the longer version of the taped interview, which was posted on YouTube by TV4 and graciously translated by Zeb.
