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 a National Magazine Award and a National Newspaper Award for sports features.

My time writing about sports has also led to new opportunities in storytelling—including television features and non-fiction book publishing. I’ve been part of two teams that were finalists at the Canadian Screen Awards for sports features.

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.

What are five overtime periods called?

Quintuple Overtime?

From the stands in Edmonton you can hear the dialogue on the ice play out like a Quentin Tarantino script.

No pro athletes curse with the constant cadence of hockey players.

For better or worse, it's part of the language of the game.

The guy behind all the NHL hockey you watched over the past week also ran the show when Steve Harvey announced the wrong winner of Miss Universe on live TV.

Steve Mayer lives by an age-old adage: Shit happens.
