InGoal Radio Podcast Episode 17: Sean Burke

This week on InGoal Radio presented by The Hockey Shop Source for Sports, we are joined by Sean Burke, 2-time Olympian, who spent almost 20 years standing in front of an NHL net before transitioning to roles a a coach and now in management. You’ll enjoy this lengthy look back at Burke’s career and many experiences in the game. First goalie coach? Johnny Bower. A junior enforcer? Not quite, but the expectations that came with being the tallest player on his junior team were not the norm for a goaltender then, or now. And speaking of size, how about facing Darren Pang in the NHL? And as we have just passed Mothers Day, Burke apologizes to his family for what he put them through having to watch him play goal – now that he has experienced the challenges of being a goalie-dad. 

Thanks to The Hockey Shop Source for Sports in Surrey, BC we are able to bring you this, and every, episode of InGoal Radio. Kevin visits Cam this week and talks about the Bauer 2X gear, the lower-priced alternative to the 2X Pro.

David Hutchison

David is one of the founders of InGoal Magazine which he began in 2009. Of course he finds time for some goaltending of his own as well, and despite his age, clings desperately to the idea that some NHL team will call him to play for them - though in his mid-forties (OK, late 40s) it'll likely be for a practice when everyone else on their depth chart has the flu and the shooter tutor has gone in for repairs.
