I wear many hats during the hockey season including serving as USA Hockey’s Minnesota District Goalie Coach-in-Chief. That means, among other duties, I am frequently invited to give presentations about goalie development at coaching clinics throughout Minnesota.

As usual, my message to the coaches was clear – they must change the way they currently do business to make goalie development a priority with their team, instead of it being an after thought. They all seemed to agree and assured me that would work on doing things differently to help with the development of their goalies.
