HCD's top scorer Mathias Brome suffered from an eating disorder in 2017 and lost weight

Mathias Brom plays brilliantly at HC Davos. It doesn’t matter that he can: Four years ago his career was on the verge of an eating disorder. “I thought I’d never play hockey again,” he says on the Swedish podcast “HockeyPlus.”

Flashback, spring 2017: Brome plays in his home country with Mora in the second-highest league. It’s going great, promotion is an issue. What no one knows: The striker is fighting not only for promotion—but also himself with an obsessive-compulsive disorder that affects his eating habits. “I couldn’t swallow food. It felt like it was getting stuck in my throat every time. Strangely, the brain is stronger than you think.”
