As a coach and a player, I prefer my goaltending to be boring. My favourite thing to watch is one of my goalies in perfect position getting hit in the chest protector with a puck absorbing the rebound. So I chose this sequence from yesterday’s wild US vs Russia Semifinals at the world juniors.
One nitpicky thing I would tell my goalie on this play is to lead with the stick a bit more. His stick and blocker didn’t need to go back towards his glove side on his load. It’s not a big push and probably didn’t need to be such a big load. As he gets older and stronger and develops the body control that comes with that, hopefully that will sort itself out.
