Cutthroat: Malarchuk on ESPN 30-30

~wasn't sure if this should have its own thread~

http://espn.go.com/30for30/film?page=cutthroat

Clint Malarchuk featured on the espn 30 for 30 series tomorrow. ESPN generally does a very good job with these short documentaries, should be a good watch. A bit excited to see which former Sabres/alumni are asked for recollections over the incident. Definitely one of the most gruesome and terrifying injuries in recent memory.

30 for 30 series is usually very well done when it's an independent film maker doing it (as opposed to NBA Films or whatever).

Will try to catch this for sure.

I liked Malarchuk when he was a Capital, and was pretty excited when Buffalo traded for him at the deadline (yes, that's what passed for excitement as a Sabres fan in the 80s). I watched that game on TV , and it was terrible waiting to hear whether he was going to be ok or not (obviously). Anyway, seems like he has/had some major problems and I won't be surprised if the show makes out the skate incident to be a cause of them. That might just be an excuse, but I'll tune in to see what he's up to these days.

Love the 30 for 30s. Elway2Marino was good, just lacked enough Jimbo.

What time? 9pm EST?

From the ESPN page, it looks like a standalone episode just on Mallard - but, on my DirecTV program guide, neither of the two episodes of "30-for-30" listed tomorrow are about him .....?

Are we sure this is tomorrow and not NEXT Wednesday?

The film is up, it's about an 11 minute short film. Another well done 30 for 30

wow, lots of respect for Clint for admitting that his gunshot wound was a suicide attempt. That couldn't have been easy for him... especially considering he still has an active coaching career in the NHL.

I got goosebumps seeing the Aud again and the incident was graphic but edited well. Really a good short, concise and introspective, transitioned from spectator to autobiography, just classy. Good to see Malarchuk is doing well.

Great little film. Very heavy and emotional. I am also very glad to see Clint is doing better.

Ironically, not that long ago on GR-55, Rob Ray mentioned that a teammate of his had attempted suicide, but he rightly did not name names. He must have been talking about Clint.

BTW: I had not heard of these 30 for 30 short films. I watched all of them that I could find at ESPN.COM.

They are all very well done and interesting. The film about the famous Honus Wagner baseball card was particularly riveting, and I'm not a card collector by any means.

They are all worth watching for sure.

Taken from a press release - ESPNMidWeek-May 30 - via espnmediazone.com -

30 for 30 Shorts: Cutthroat about Former Buffalo Sabre’s Goalie Clint Malarchuk
contact: jennifer.j.cingari@espn.com

The newest installment of ESPN Films’ 30 for 30 Shorts series, Cutthroat, debuts today on Grantland.com. The short film focuses on former Buffalo Sabres goalie Clint Malarchuk and his emotional and physical recovery from one of the most gruesome injuries in sports history.

During a game against the St. Louis Blues, an opposing player’s skate blade severed Malarchuk’s carotid artery, causing one of the most shocking scenes to ever take place in a hockey rink. From award-winning director Steven Cantor, Cutthroat chronicles Malarchuk’s injury, his remarkably short two-week physical recovery and his long grueling emotional and mental journey, which spans twenty years and included a six-month stay in a mental hospital for long-overdue PTSD treatment.

ESPN Films’ 30 for 30 Shorts series is artfully crafted by Blue Moon. Previous films from the series include Arnold’s Blueprint, Ali: The Mission, and The Irrelevant Giant, among others. All can be viewed on Grantland.com.

Agreed! (Minus the parts with Keith Olbermann)

Even though I was young when it happened and all I know about it is from news articles etc... I really enjoyed watching this and it was really well put together.

I'm surprised he did this. He doesn't like to talk about the injury and in the video you can tell he's still pretty shaken up by it.

This is currently being promoted on the front page of ESPN.com - theres a picture of Clint and his dog looking out at a sunset as well as links to the 30 for 30 film and an article.

(If you don't catch the video/article on the front page of espn.com - as it will probably disappear later this evening - both can seen/read at grantland.com)

Update: Well with the breaking news of the possible suspensions in MLB, Clints story has now been bump from the front page of ESPN.com.

It got a little dusty watching this one. I can't imagine how tough it was for Clint to talk about it in that detail, then to talk about his suicide attempt. Glad he's on the rebound and working in hockey again.

I've never seen footage of his injury....I don't have the stomach for it. Is this video very graphic/does it actually show the injury happening?

It shows the injury, and it's every bit as horrific as I'm sure you've heard.

edit: they show it between the 2:15 and 2:30 mark if you still want to watch it. I believe they only show it once, but someone else can probably confirm.

Also worth noting that the Zednik injury is shown as well.

I've seen it several times over the years (including live on TV as a kid) and there's a lot of blood but it's not like a gore film where you get up close and see the inside of the guy's neck. Blood pools around him and the cameras pan way out and then stop filming the ice all together.
