Episode 210 of the InGoal Radio Podcast, presented by The Hockey Shop Source for Sports, features a fun, story time-style interview with long-time professional goalie and pro scout Rick Knickle.

In the feature interview, presented by Sense Arena, Knickle shares stories and valuable insights from a pro career that included 17 teams in four leagues over 18 seasons, including finally making the NHL with Wayne Gretzky’s Los Angeles Kings at age 32, three years after he originally decided to retire. Knickle shares incredible memories of everything from a Memorial Cup brawl before puck drop, to being chosen ahead of a then-unknown Patrick Roy in a trade from Sherbrooke that might have changed that Hall of Famers early path, to rooting through used equipment bins (happily) after making the WHL for the first time and deciding to try an old Glen Hanlon fibreglass mask that left him bleeding and with a nasty scar above the eye that’s still there today. Knickle also gets into coaching young goalies with Steel Hockey in Vancouver, lessons from his 16 seasons as a pro scout in the NHL, and his new company, Team 33, a scouting service that tries to help NHL teams compare pro player values when making trades.

All that, plus a trip to The Hockey Shop Source for Sports for some insights from Cam on how best to secure your knee pads so they won’t slip or shift while you are playing.
