30 for 30 Shorts: ‘Cutthroat’

Our latest film, from award-winning director Steven Cantor, on Clint Malarchuk's long recovery from the gruesome NHL injury that almost took his life

Welcome back to our 30 for 30 documentary short series.

The latest film is Cutthroat, by award-winning director Steven Cantor. Clint Malarchuk was famous for being an NHL goalie, but he would go down in hockey history for suffering one of the most gruesome injuries in the history of sports when an opposing player’s skate severed his carotid artery. This story covers Malarchuk’s miraculous physical recovery from the injury as well as the long and grueling emotional recuperation that took two decades and included an eventual stay in a mental hospital for PTSD treatment. [Warning: This film contains graphic footage of the injury.]
