Carey Rie looking down ice close up

InGoal had Carey Price mic’d up at the Eli Wilson Goaltending #DayWithPrice camp recently. We’ve found over the years that his casual interactions with the young students are some of the highlights of the day. Open and honest, Price is relaxed and as happy to share his knowledge as he is to joke around and share some light-hearted moments.

In a brief chat we captured on video, Price answers a common question he has received over the years many times, “how do you break in a glove?”

For most of us that means one, or at most two, gloves have to be broken in each a season. For an NHL goaltender like Price though, it means up to a dozen in a season – or in one NHL case we heard of (not Price) it means one glove a week. So Carey has learned a little trick, one that is not so easy for the average goaltender to try unfortunately.

Check out the video below to learn about Price’s method…and we know we sometimes say a glove closes like butter but, well, have a listen for yourself.
