Product description

Review

“This is an amazing book. An odyssey of pain, illness, determination and triumph against long, long odds. This took courage to write and requires a strong stomach to read. I treasured it, mainly because of my respect for the author. This book will save lives.” -Brian Burke

Everyone remembers the incident in which Clint Malarchuk’s throat was cut with a skate during an NHL game. He almost died. But that is only part of his incredible life story.

The Crazy Game takes you deep into the troubled mind of Clint Malarchuk, the former NHL goaltender. Even as a boy, Malarchuk faced such deep anxiety that he missed school and acted out at school and with his friends. When his throat was slashed during a collision in the crease, Malarchuk nearly died on the ice. Forever changed, he struggled deeply with depression and a dependence on alcohol, which nearly cost him his life and left a bullet in his head.

“This is a tough book written by a tough survivor. It will help a lot of people. A must read.” –Don Cherry

“This is one of the most powerful books ever written by an athlete. Clint will help many others by sharing his life story. I applaud Clint for being so courageous!” —Kelly Hrudey

“Hockey’s ultimate survival story.”—Bernie Parent

“A powerful, brave and brutally honest look inside the game, but more importantly inside mental illness. It’s a haunting book that tells a story still being written.” —Stephen Brunt

“This is the most harrowing story in hockey if not all of sports. It would take a brave man to endure all that Clint Malarchuk has. It would take a heroic one to take readers through his battle with mental illness.” —Gare Joyce

“I've known Clint for 26 years, as I coached him in Washington and he was my goalie coach in Columbus. A great read about his battles and how he refuses to give up.” —Doug MacLean
