InGoal Radio Podcast Episode 42: Andrew Raycroft
In this Episode of the InGoal Radio Podcast presented by The Hockey Shop Source for Sports , we sit down with Calder Trophy winning goaltender Andrew Raycroft.
From the Boston Bruins to the Toronto Maple Leafs, being traded for Tuukka Rask to working with him now as part of the broadcast team at NESN, Raycroft shared some great insights on everything from breaking into the NHL at a young age, to playing with his boyhood idol Felix Potvin, to how a year with Ian Clark and the Vancouver Canucks revitalized his career — but not how you might think.
Speaking of Rask, we also caught up with Jake Allen of the St. Louis Blues, who shared a previously untold story about how his impersonation of the Bruins No.1 was used to help win the Stanley Cup.
In the gear segment, we give Cam a break at the Hockey Shop and instead check in with Adam Gans, the director of innovation at CCM, a goaltender and a mechanical engineer with composites who has more than been specializing in sticks for 20 years, for a fascinating discussion about the recent evolution of composite goaltending sticks, and where they are headed next.
