    Episode 60 Manny Legace

    In this Episode of the InGoal Radio Podcast presented by The Hockey Shop Source for Sports ,we have a lengthy chat with former NHL goaltender and now Columbus Blue Jackets Goaltending Coach Manny Legace. The stories range from registering under a pseudonym as a child so that he could play goal on another team while staying as a forward on his own minor hockey team, to playing in the Olympics where he was to be Canada's shootout specialist, to what is was like to be a young goaltender on the famed Detroit Red Wings with Yzerman, Lidstrom, Chelios and other future Hall of Famers - and of course those legendary 38" pads.

    In the Gear Segment we talk about a new undergarment you just have to try the Zenkai compression socks with bite in lace bite protectors that will leave your feet feeling fresh and your skates completely dry. You can see them all at the Hockey Shop.

    Episode 59 Greg Harrison

    Episode 59 Greg Harrison

    In this Episode of the InGoal Radio Podcast presented by The Hockey Shop Source for Sports ,we have a lengthy chat with legendary mask maker and artist Greg Harrison. His clients are a who's who of goaltending and if you are a fan of classic masks you'll recognize his work in an instant. Gratton's famous lion, Rutherford's wings, Bannerman, Bromley, Belfour, Potvin and hundreds more. He is also the man who brought us the combo mask we all wear today. Oh, and lets not forget that he was a goaltender himself, 13 years a practice goalie for the Leafs, long before anyone knew who David Ayers was and came close to having his own moment in the spotlight.

    Greg is making custom masks today and can be reached directly via Instagram @GregHarrisonTheMask, or through GoalieParts.com

    In the interview we talk about the famous Lion of Gilles Gratton - you might enjoy this article from InGoal when we caught up with Gratton several years ago.

    In the Gear Segment we talk about tape alternatives for your stick knob, including Butt Endz and Tacki-Mac Command Tape Grip. You can see them all at the Hockey Shop.

    Episode 58 Bob Essensa, Trade Deadline and PadSkinz

    Episode 58 Bob Essensa, Trade Deadline and PadSkinz

    we catch up with Bob Essensa to talk about everything from a playing career that started, as so many do, as the little brother that was forced into the net and ended with six NHL teams over 12 seasons before becoming the Boston Bruins goaltending coach in 2003. The man they call Goalie Bob shares insights as a goalie who played in the "fear factor" era, when shots really hurt, and through the evolution to equipment that not only better protected you, but also pads that actually rotated in the butterfly. He talks about staying current in an ever shifting coaching environment, and working with a future Hall of Fame goaltender like Tuukka Rask, including all the questions and criticisms he gets from other goaltending coaches in the summer about Rask's preference for "shin on post" on sharp-angle plays. The answer is revealing.

    In The Hockey Shop’s Gear Segment we speak with Cam about the PadSkinz, the easy-to-apply do-it-yourself way to change up your pad and glove colors and graphics if you find yourself changing teams for spring or summer hockey, and a perfectly timed segment given the NHL trade deadline left goalies like Jack Campbell doing the same to transform his Los Angeles Kings equipment into Toronto Maple Leafs colours.

    Speaking of trades, Dad, Woody and Daren discuss the moves that happened -- and maybe more pointedly, some of the ones that didn't -- ahead of this week's deadline, as well as the EBUG heroics of David Ayres for the Carolina Hurricanes in Toronto over the weekend, and what it might mean for how the NHL handles similar situations in the future.

Great information for a new goalie or beer leaguer

I love the information I’ve gotten from this, whether it’s the gear breakdowns or the stretching and workout regimen. The only thing I wish they would fix is the water/feedback sound from the microphones

Nice job. It’s a fun podcast and hearing people chat about gear is fun. The real gold is the talk about the mental aspects: the intellectual and psychological parts of the game are so vital and it’s great to hear different perspectives about them. Especially for younger players.
One tip: may flow better if instead of rehashing what we’re *going* to hear in an interview, just get right into it.

Great Podcast and Mag!

I’ve been a goaltender for a long time; I needed to take ~10 years off due to work, but I’m retired now and have been back on the ice for about a year. Your podcast is amazing and provides awesome insight into the game and gear. The interviews are spot on! Your mag reviews introduced me to Warrior and helped me decide to get a set of Warrior R/G4 Pro pads in December, I absolutely love them. Keep up the great work!
