The Crazy Game: How I Survived in the Crease and Beyond
Thursday, February 2, 2023
7:30 PM - 8:45 PM
Please join the Center for Rural Behavioral Health, Minnesota State Mankato Athletics and the Student Events Team to hear the incredible story of Clint Malarchuk, former NHL goaltender and mental health advocate.
No job in the world of sports is as intimidating, exhilarating, and stressful as that of a hockey goaltender. Now imagine doing that job while suffering from high anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, and depression, and having your career nearly 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 almost ending his life by a gunshot to the head — in his relentless effort to help end the stigma of mental illness and to help others who may suffer as well.
This event is free and open the public, Minnesota State Mankato students, staff and faculty.
