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.

Takes nothing away from Andreescu.

An incredible champion.

(And what a sad but nice moment between her and Williams.)

Bianca Andreescu — what an incredible story.
