Once again we bring our Members an early release of a coming feature interview for InGoal Radio.
Recently named to the 2020 class of the Hockey Hall of Fame, Kim St. Pierre will be the first female goaltender inducted into the Hall. St. Pierre was our guest this week on the InGoal Radio Podcast, and today we bring that interview to our Premium Members ahead of its public release on the podcast.
This interview has so many great takeaways for goaltenders; it will have something for everyone. It was without a doubt one of our favorites — and not just because she managed to “one more question” our Kevin Woodley! We’re glad she did because it was to make another important point in an interview filled with them.
With a bit of everything from her incredible Hall of Fame career, there are lessons for goaltenders at all levels whether just starting out or playing, as St. Pierre did, at the highest levels of the game. Kim’s thoughts on mindset and how she learned to deal with the pressure of International Play resonate not just for elite goaltenders but are also framed for young goaltenders just starting out. Her approach to the game, preparation, and practice hold lessons for all of us.
St. Pierre earned 3 Olympic Gold Medals, 5 World Championship gold and as a member of Team Canada set records with 15 shutouts and a remarkable .840 goals against average. We hope that you enjoy this interview as much as we did — and we look forward to the next opportunity to bring this Hall of Fame goaltender to the InGoal audience.
