A psychiatric report says former NHL hockey prospect Daniel Ryder, who was declared unfit to stand trial after he was charged with armed robbery in January, is fighting severe mental illness. CBC has obtained documents from the province's Mental Health Review Board that say Ryder had a serious psychotic episode in the fall of 2009 and his history of psychosis and mental illness started when he was 19. The report also said Ryder, the younger brother of the Boston Bruins' Michael Ryder, has a history of substance abuse, with alcohol and marijuana. ...Daniel Ryder began seeing a psychiatrist in St. John's six months before the robbery. The report says Ryder is responding well to treatment with a different anti-psychotic drug, but his progress is described as slow. ...Ryder is still a significant risk to public safety. He is allowed out of the Waterford hospital on passes in his family's care. Not surprising and very sad, I hope he keeps getting the help he needs to get better.
