The October edition of InGoal Magazine is out, with an in-depth cover story on Braden Holtby among 100 pages of goaltending news, interviews, and gear reviews, including the first ever in-depth look at Brian’s new hybrid G-NETik line.
There’s also 31 pages of instruction to help make you a better goaltender, including drills tips from professional stoppers like Eddie Lack, Mark Dekanich, Rick Dipietro and David LeNeveu, a video drill demonstration by Dan Ellis, and a unique look at the life of a pro goaltender overseas from former Avalanche’ and Canucks’ tender Tyler Weiman.
Here’s a more complete look at what’s inside:
After a breakout playoffs with the Washington Capitals, Holtby spent an hour talking to InGoal about trying to to find middle ground in everything from routine and superstition, athleticism and technique, the outward energy he shows and the inner calm he feels, and being a professional athlete and a new dad.
