In that feature interview presented by Sense Arena, Hrudey shares stories from a career that almost ended as a teenager, including lessons from legendary New York Islanders Billy Smith and Al Arbour, a funny story about his status as the paddle-down pioneer, why he really held his glove so high, and the importance of style, including some of the earliest customized pad designs, that iconic “Hollywood” mask with the Los Angeles Kings, and his real nickname. Hrudey also talks about his relationship with Wayne Gretzky, how motivational speaker Tony Robbins saved his career, and his role now helping others with mental health.
All that, plus another trip to The Hockey Shop for a fresh gear segment that looks at two Warrior chest protector models. Of course, as many already know, we’re now also sharing a video version of our gear segments at The Hockey Shop — think of it as a simulcast like TV and radio broadcasts of an NHL game — to bring you behind the scenes at Goalie Utopia and add visual elements highlighting new features of each piece. You can watch this week’s review below:
