This one may be our longest feature to date as David Hutchison sits down to talk sport science and goaltending with InGoal Member, and New Jersey Devils Director of Performance Science & Reconditioning Coach, Devan McConnell.

We talk about what makes goaltenders different from a physiology and biomechanics perspective, injury prevention, efficient training and recovery in the midst of challenging schedules – in the NHL or minor hockey – our specific needs in training and in practice and much more. McConnell is not just an NHL Sport Science Director who works with the likes of MacKenzie Blackwood and Cory Schneider, he is a goaltender himself who played and coached at the college level. This interview is packed with knowledge that will help goaltenders and coaches at all levels.
