Episode 225 of the InGoal Radio Podcast, presented by The Hockey Shop Source for Sports, features the first goaltender selected in the 2023 NHL Entry Draft and winner of the Top Goaltender award at the 2023 World Junior Championship, Adam Gajan.

In the feature interview, presented by Sense Arena, the Chicago Blackhawks second round pick talks about his experience from being left off the Slovakian World Junior Roster to becoming a late addition as third goaltender to unlikely hero, defeating the United States and taking fellow Blackhawks draft pick Connor Bedard and the Canadians in a 57-shot overtime game, that Bedard ultimately ended. We learn how Gajan came to playoff Chippewa of the NAHL, to developing his elite puckhandling skills and the coach that enabled it, and how he handled the big-game pressure with a humble confidence.

Check out the YouTube video of his puckhandling mentioned in this episode.

All that, plus an in-person trip to The Hockey Shop Source for Sports where we look at CCM’s new EFlex 6 skate, what sets it apart from other models and why it’s worth considering for your next purchase even as other skates on the market garner considerable attention.
