Duthie’s work at TSN has earned him multiple awards including three Geminis, a Canadian Screen Award, and the Excellence in Sports Broadcasting award from Sports Media Canada. He is the author of four books, the latest being Beauties: Hockey's Greatest Untold Stories. It features 57 incredible stories from hockey’s biggest names, greatest characters and unsung heroes, including how Steve Stamkos’s dad accidentally stole Steve Yzerman’s car and how Wayne Gretzky’s greatest one-liner may have turned around the Stanley Cup Final in 1985.
When putting together the stories for Beauties, Duthie was able to use his experience in hockey to get others to open up about some stories they may not otherwise have felt comfortable sharing.
“I think hockey perhaps as much as any other is a family-shared experience. Whether it’s your dad driving you to the rink before a long shift, getting up and driving me down to the freezing cold arena at 5 AM, getting me out of bed. The family part of hockey seems engrained, maybe more than other sports. Some of our greatest memories are hockey tournaments and bringing the family along.”
