Beyond the Superman Punches, Kevin Bieksa helping fight stigma of mental illness
ANAHEIM, CA – There’s joy to Anaheim Ducks defenseman Kevin Bieksa.
It’s in talking about his family: His wife, Katie, and two children, Cole and Reese. It’s in talking about his team, which has remained in the Western Conference playoff hunt despite a devastating series of injuries to key players. And sometimes, it’s in the way Bieksa, 36, brings joy to others through unorthodox means: Like getting a rise out of the crowd with a “Superman Punch” in a fight that goes viral; or getting a rise out of his teammates by donning a disguise and making them an unwitting co-star in a comedy video.
