About

Dan Robson is Head of Features and a Senior Writer for the Athletic Canada. He is an award-winning journalist and the bestselling author of several books. Previously he was a Senior Writer at Sportsnet Magazine and Sportsnet.ca.

After studying English Lit and Education at Queen’s University, I received a Masters degree in journalism at Carleton University. In 2011, I was part of the launch of  Sportsnet Magazine, as a senior writer. I was with Sportsnet until fall 2018, when I joined The Athletic.

I joined Sportsnet magazine when it launched in September 2011. The magazine took me on journeys to Haiti and through the Arctic, with stops at a few baseball diamonds and hockey rinks along the way. I’ve won gold at the National Magazine Awards for the sports writing and have been a finalist several times across a range of categories.

My time with Sportsnet has also led to exciting new opportunities in storytelling—including television features and non-fiction book publishing. Sportsnet’s production of Home and Really Far Away: The Boys from Whale Cove was a finalist for Best Sports Program at the Canadian Screen Awards.

The Crazy Game, a memoir by former NHL goalie Clint Malarchuk, which I co-wrote, was published in the fall of 2014 by HarperCollins Canada and is a national bestseller.

Change Up, which I wrote with Blue Jays broadcaster Buck Martinez, was published by HarperCollins Canada in spring 2016, and is also a national bestselling book.

Quinn: The Life of a Hockey Legend, a biography of the late Pat Quinn, was published by Viking Canada in fall 2015. It was longlisted for the 2017 RBC Taylor Price for literary non-fiction, and is a national bestseller.

Killer: My Life in Hockey, a memoir by Doug Gilmour, which I co-wrote, was published by HarperCollins Canada. It was the No. 1 bestselling Canadian non-fiction book of 2017.

Bower: A Legendary Life, an in-depth biography of beloved goalie Johnny Bower, was published in October 2018 by HarperCollins Canada.

Great to see.

Too many photos get passed around without proper credit. (Drake posted this same pic on IG, no credit)

This kind of shot doesn’t happen without an absolute pro behind the lens, like @RMadonik

You and your iPhone can’t do this.👇 https://t.co/02bfbAhe9s

Here's a lovely story on Connor McDavid and his mom, Kelly  — from @DNBsports

Congrats to @RMadonik for capturing the biggest moment in Raptors history with this piece of art.

(Add this to the long list of iconic sports photos captured via the @TorontoStar and other great newspapers.) https://t.co/FKNeEirXMF

What an absolutely incredible photo https://t.co/QVPrLwKwTM

Someone please do the thing where you overlay Celine Dion's Heart Will Go On over this... https://t.co/pa9BFIln1h

Kawhi and the bounce will be remembered, but Lowry was an enormous presence in game 7. I'm all about this angle.

Great work from @BlakeMurphyODC 👇 https://t.co/zw1kWwmsrL
