The Crazy Game: How I Survived in the Crease and Beyond

Clint Malarchuk

 

No job in the world of sports is as intimidating, exhilarating and as stress-ridden as that of a hockey goaltender. Now imagine doing that job while suffering high anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder and depression, and having your career nearly literally cut short when a skate sliced across your neck.

Clint Malarchuk, the famed former NHL goaltender, shares his extraordinary and heart-wrenching life story—which includes his long battle with alcoholism and a suicide attempt—in his relentless effort to help end the stigma of mental illness and to assist others who are suffering.
