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.

I’m represented by Rick Broadhead at RBA Literary Agents.

This is a heartbreaking episode of @frontburnercbc.

Memories of beautiful lives lost in incomprehensible chaos.

The grief will be endless, wrenched by so many questions likely to go unanswered. https://t.co/DW02Q5Hupb

“If it was an engine problem [...] the black box will determine that. If it was an explosive or a missile strike, the black box may not reveal that. That's why this wreckage is so highly important.” @MarySchiavo on crash investigation in Iran: https://t.co/Tpz4LCdCRi https://t.co/AYSp6ZqMDI

An interesting thread looking back on photos taken every hour during a day in Toronto, 34 years ago.

Leafs coach Dan Maloney and forward Greg Terrion are in this picture.

I recently wrote about what happened to both men in the decades that followed.
