This two-day event will provide professional development opportunities through digital webinars for all 22 WHL member Club goaltending consultants, 17 Hockey Canada coaches, representatives from BC Hockey, Hockey Alberta, Saskatchewan Hockey Association, and Hockey Manitoba, as well as representatives from the Ontario Hockey League and Quebec Major Junior Hockey League offices.

Guest speakers for the two-day goaltending symposium include assistant coach Glen Gulutzan (Edmonton Oilers), video coach Tyler Dietrich (Hockey Canada), sports psychologist John Stevenson (Zone Performance), and goaltending coaches Scott Murray (Washington Capitals), David Alexander (St. Louis Blues), Matt Weninger (Moose Jaw Warriors / Hockey Alberta), Dustin Schwartz (Edmonton Oilers), Kurtis Mucha (Edmonton Oil Kings), Ian Gordon (Seattle Thunderbirds), and Dan De Palma (Kamloops Blazers).

The event will conclude with a goaltending hot stove hosted by InGoal Magazine’s Daren Millard (Vegas Golden Knights) and featuring Carter Hart (Philadelphia Flyers / WHL Alumni) and 11-year NHL veteran Jason LaBarbera (Calgary Hitmen / Hockey Canada).

The best news for InGoal Magazine readers is this exciting partnership includes being able to share many of these presentations, many of which include video breakdowns, with InGoal Premium Members over the coming months.
