Shot/pass/shot with a potential second pass drill. Great save because the goalie got into position on the first pass on his feet, so he was able to push back on the second pass!

When NOT TO RVH! Use the RVH in right when the puck is behind the goal line. The RVH leaves the high short and long sides vulnerable, so the puck has to be close to the net. Perfect for situations when the shooters cannot elevate the puck. #nhl #nhlplayoffs #goalienation #usahockey #hockeycanada #goalietraining #goaliedevelopment #goaliedrills #hockeygoalie #goaliesaves #goaliesquad

NHL Playoff video clips of common goalie errors of dropping the glove or rotating the glove downward on high corner shots (first two clips) and the third clip of Carter Hart making the correct adjustment by being patient and reading the shot

Tracking the puck and being comfortable being behind the play and knowing that effort can make up for being behind the play = Elite Goaltending

Absoloute robbery from Korpisalo oh my. 😳

This is why we preach to never give up on a puck no matter what. This is also why we practice extreme, near impossible, situations so that when they come up in a game, you can make the stop!

RVH goalie technique under microscope during Playoffs

When 6’4” men play the size of 3’10” boys. Do the math.

Criticism of the RVH save selection has been prevalent during the Stanley Cup Playoffs as goalies across the NHL have been victimized when deploying it through the early stages of the postseason.

In case you missed it, Joonas Korpisalo had 85 saves in his 5 OT performance yesterday!

I saw the vids on passing. Could you do a video on lifting the puck or clearing it from the zone. I can’t consistently lift the puck when clearing or passing. Any tips would be great. Thanks in advance!
You are an essential business, correct? 🤞🏻
Zack is doing great here at the Sioux City Musketeers pre-draft camp! He is holding his own and ranking 4-5 out of 15 goalies here! He said the last few lessons have really helped him here!! Ty guys! 😃 happy hockey mom here!!

With the close of the 2017/2018 season, we have to call out the outstanding development of our young goalie by Goalie Academy. Darren, Tanner, and the others at Goalie Academy provided excellent instruction all year. Our son's skills improved significantly. Thank you.
