Episode Info: Host: Michelle Rober (@RoberLeap) In this week's cruise through the Soul-Universe, Michelle meets a former NHL goalie who is also a cowboy AND the author of "A Matter of Inches: How I Survived in the Crease and Beyond". No job in the world of sports is as intimidating, exhilarating, and stress-ridden as that of a hockey goaltender. Pucks whiz by at 100 mph and Clint Malarchuk did that job while suffering high anxiety, depression, and obsessive compulsive disorder. His career was cut short - although not ended, when in a game between the Buffalo Sabres and the St. Louis Blues, a skate cut across his neck, hitting his carotid artery leaving him bleeding - just minutes from death on the ice in front of thousands. In this heartfelt conversation, Clint gives us a first-person account of not only his NHL career and surviving the most gruesome injury hockey has ever seen - but a revelation of the internal aftermath he experienced, forever changed by one moment - in a collision in the crease. His subsequent struggles with depression, a dependence on alcohol, and PTSD left a bullet in his head, but also led him to recovery and a deeper purpose in life. Clint shares his mission and his message powerfully in this book - a riveting tell-all - raw with struggle and hope. Living once - Clint has cheated death twice, but in countless ways has already helped thousands. Thank you Clint - and a big thank you to Dan Robson, senior writer at Sportsnet Magazine, for your talents and collaboration with Clint to make this book so powerful!
