The Crazy Game

Ex-NHL goalie Clint Malarchuk opens up on mental illness in 'The Crazy Game'

Former hockey goaltender Clint Malarchuk is famous for nearly dying on the ice during an NHL game in 1989 after a wayward skate blade sliced his neck. But in his new memoir, The Crazy Game, he reveals that moment was just one of a handful of near-death experiences. 

Malarchuk joins Jian to talk about his battle with depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder and alcoholism. He opens up about his wife Joanie, who was with him when he shot himself in the head, how he continues to deal with mental illness today, and whether he thinks the stigma around it is changing.
