In the US population:

7% suffer from depression
18% suffer from anxiety
18% have alcohol issues
8% have drug issues

So 51% of the US population has issues that 59% of a small NHL sample population has?

..doesn't sound like anything outside the norm.
You should probably look into things like co-morbidity and dual diagnosis

Four junior hockey players diagnosed with CTE, researcher says

To quote:

"A researcher at Boston University says she has diagnosed chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE, in the brains of four former junior hockey players.

Neuropathologist Dr. Ann McKee made the diagnoses over the past two years. Each of the four former junior players none of whom advanced to the National Hockey League committed suicide before the age of 30, she said."
