InGoal Radio Podcast Episode 45: MacKenzie Skapski
In this Episode of the InGoal Radio Podcast presented by The Hockey Shop Source for Sports , we sit down with recently retired former New York Rangers goaltender Mackenzie Skapski, who shares some fascinating stories from a career that ended with a .978 save percentage in the NHL and some compelling lessons on how hard it can be to truly understand your own game.
Skapski is continuing to work with goalies through his new company, Assertion Goaltending, founded along with Rangers development coach Jeff Malcolm, and shares some insightful tips on the lessons he learned late in his career about identifying and sticking to your foundation as a goaltender. Their new program, which contains a strong video analysis component and principles from Rangers goaltending guru Benoit Allaire, hopes to change that side of the goaltending development model so other goalies don’t have to wait until the end of their career to really understand what makes them good and how to repeat it.
In the gear segment, we connect with Cam at the Hockey Shop again or a preview of their massive Black Friday Sale, which is kind of like a floater from the point: No goalie will want to miss these deals.
