Former NHLer To Share Journey Of Recovery At Breakfast Of Champions

London, Ontario – He could stop a 100 mph slapshot, but not the anxiety and depression that haunted him on and off the ice. Former NHL goaltender and coach, Clint Malarchuk, will share his extraordinary journey from his battle with alcoholism and an attempt on his own life to his ongoing mental health advocacy at this year's Breakfast of Champions.

Malarchuk played 11 seasons in the NHL for the Quebec Nordiques, Washington Capitals and Buffalo Sabres. During an infamous game in 1989, he survived a gruesome on-ice incident when another player's skate blade accidentally severed his carotid artery in a scrum around the goal crease. Although he was back on the ice ten days later, Malarchuk still experiences post-traumatic stress disorder from the nearly lethal injury.
