He had developed a rare skin rash, known in sports circles as "gunk," on his knees and shins. The rash causes a mass of ugly, purple welts to appear on the body and scratching makes the condition worse. Vopat tried to combat the "gunk" with a variety of ointments--without luck. Vopat ended his 1999-2000 season on December 10, 1999 after six games. After hoping the off season would clear the rash, he found that it was back. His NHL dream had to be abandoned. He did try a comeback in 2000-01 with a team in Finland, but he had to withdraw before playing a game because the rash began creeping across his arms and legs. Due to tha he was forced to retire.
