InGoal Radio Podcast Episode 48: Noora Räty and Frederik Andersen
In this Episode of the InGoal Radio Podcast presented by The Hockey Shop Source for Sports , we have a lengthy interview with one of the finest women’s goaltenders in the world – Noora Räty of Finland, now playing professionally for Kunlun Red Star in China. Her National Team career began at 15, the Olympics at 16, she has an remarkable NCAA record, including an undefeated senior season with a .956 save %, and has been playing for Kunlun since 2017. Like all the pros we meet, Räty shares her story of beginning in net and her development into a pro. She also gives us her thoughts on the challenges facing the women’s professional game today.

There’s lots more from the goalie world including small cameos from Tim Thomas and Carey Price, talk of lacrosse goals, and a scary scene in the Ontario Hockey League.

You might be surprised to hear how many….
