What the puck sees when you drop your glove

Glove position for hockey goalies

Glove position for hockey goaliesHowdy have another on-ice video for you today, showing how the training you do off the ice directly relates to your performance on the ice.  Today we will take a puck-eye view of the net and how your glove position affects the space available to shooters.

Paul and I are still on the road, right now we are hanging out in the ‘other’ London – the original one in the UK.  Having a super time checking out the sites and retracing some of the steps of my ancestors.

The picture on the left is from the site of the Saracen’s Head Inn which was a pub, inn and coach station run by my great, great, great Grandmother Sarah – maybe that is where I got my entrepreneurial spirit 🙂  It is a police station now, but a place I visit every time I am here.  If you are a literature buff, the Saracen’s Head is described in detail by Charles Dickens in the early parts of Nicholas Nickleby.

Okay, enough of a history lesson – on to your GOALIE TRAINING….

When I was out on the ice a few weeks ago with Future Pro Goaltending’s Jason VanSpronsen and the Sarnia Sting’s Justin Fazio we took a ‘puck-eye view’ to see how dropping the glove either because you are fatigued or dropping into a blocking butterfly opens up so much space for the shooter.

This relates directly back to the off-ice goalie training exercise I showed you last month that will help you not only build stamina in the shoulder that supports your glove hand, but also awareness of what your glove hand is doing as you are moving with speed and agility. If you missed it, you will want to add this to your off-ice training sooner than later.
