Why Hockey Goalies Shouldn’t Butterfly ?


I’m going to explain WHY hockey goalies shouldn’t butterfly – – but I don’t for one second expect ANY hockey goalies to stop using the butterfly. You aren’t going to see Carey Price and Connor Hellebuyck come out playing a Ken Dryden stand up style.

But it’s important that you understand the risk and reward.  Here We Go ?


Now we’ll continue with this series where I will give you the off-ice training drills goalies need to MORE EFFECTIVELY use their butterfly, butterfly pushes and butterfly slides while REDUCING the wear and tear on those beautiful hips.

Happy Hips, Happy Goalie
