Episode 206 of the InGoal Radio Podcast, presented by The Hockey Shop Source for Sports, features a lengthy and informative chat with Minnesota Wild goalie coach Freddie Chabot.

In the feature interview, presented by Sense Arena, Chabot shares insights from a 17-year professional career that started with lessons from Francois Allaire and the Montreal Canadiens (but you might be surprised by the focus of those lessons), and also included time with the Los Angeles Kings and a short stint with the Philadelphia Flyers that included a drill from then-goalie coach Bernie Parent that he still uses today. Chabot blends the lessons from his playing days into his role as a goalie coach for the past decade-plus, including six seasons with the Edmonton Oilers and the past three with the Minnesota Wild, and his work wiht Devan Dubnyk, Marc-Andre Fleury and now Filip Gustavsson, with the latter two teaming up as a top tandem in the NHL. It’s loaded with insights and advice any goalie or coach will benefit from, including how to run that Parent drill. 

All that, plus a trip to the new location of The Hockey Shop Source for Sports for a closer look at custom blade profiling, various options, and how a different radius can help you as a goalie.
