Peterson's fight with Parkinson's takes amazing turn for the better

Earlier this month, I was fortunate to catch up with Brent Peterson in Nashville. The former Sabres center, who suffers from Parkinson's disease, was preparing for his second step in a four-step process called deep brain stimulation. DBS uses electrodes implanted in the brain to control Parkinson's symptoms.

This video from WKRN-TV in Nashville shows the completion of the four steps, and the results are amazing. Congrats to Brent, and hopefully the Predators' adviser continues to improve.
