Episode 248 of the InGoal Radio Podcast, presented by The Hockey Shop Source for Sports, features two great NHL guests: Cayden Primeau of the Montreal Canadiens and Ukko-Pekka Luukonen of the Buffalo Sabres.

In the feature interviews presented by NHL Sense Arena Primeau gives us a glimpse into his first full season with the famed Canadiens, including the great job goalie coach Eric Raymond did balancing a three-goalie rotation for much of the season, some great lessons from Jake Allen as a mentor, and the huge impact Pete Fry has had on his mindset as a goalie over the past year. In our second interview, Luukonen, who ironically was drafted the same year and faced Primeau in the World Junior Championship gold-medal game in 2019, shares insights into his fantastic season and rise to being the Sabres No. 1 goalie with top-10 numbers in the NHL, and how he used a 33-game opportunity to identify the changes he needed to make in his body and style that have led to this success.

Our Parents Segment responds to a question we get often as parents want to know, “Should I send my goalie to that try out camp a Junior team is holding?”

All that, plus a trip to The Hockey Shop Source for Sports for a look at the incredibly light True Project X stick, with innovative shapes and flex points designed to help goalies pass the puck as well as they stop it.
