InGoal Radio Feature Interview: Devan McConnell, New Jersey Devils Director of Performance Science & Reconditioning Coach

Once again we bring our Members an early release of a coming feature interview for InGoal Radio.

This one may be our longest feature to date as David Hutchison sits down to talk sport science and goaltending with InGoal Member, and New Jersey Devils Director of Performance Science & Reconditioning Coach, Devan McConnell.
We talk about what makes goaltenders different from a physiology and biomechanics perspective, injury prevention, efficient training and recovery in the midst of challenging schedules – in the NHL or minor hockey – our specific needs in training and in practice and much more. McConnell is not just an NHL Sport Science Director who works with the likes of MacKenzie Blackwood and Cory Schneider, he is a goaltender himself who played and coached at the college level. This interview is packed with knowledge that will help goaltenders and coaches at all levels.
Members can enjoy the video of this interview below, and look forward to hearing it on your favorite podcast provider soon.

Generally, you will be able to hear them in our public podcast feed, available on all major providers, the week following their release here.  Occasionally, as with this interview with Mathieu Garon, we publish the video of the interview as well.
