Episode 92 of the InGoal Radio Podcast, presented by The Hockey Shop Source for Sports, is live and loaded with great position-specific take aways from Los Angeles Kings goalie Matt Villalta, who is already skating in California with Jonathan Quick, Bill Ranford and AHL goalie coach Matt Millar.
In that feature interview presented by Sense Arena, Villalta shares lessons from his time on the ice with the two-time Stanley Cup winner, including some specific details from Quick that he’s working to add to his own game. Coming off his first-year pro, Villalta is open and insightful about the evolution of his own game, all the various tools he’s used to keep improving during a now 8-month break between games, including Sense Arena and a few other tools already featured at InGoal, and how something as simple as what you choose to put on your mask can help create the mindset necessary to succeed as a pro.
All that, plus another trip to The Hockey Shop for a fresh gear segment that looks at the new CCM AXIS chest protector, which adds some new layers of protection to their already popular Premier models.
Of course, as some of you may know, we’re now also sharing a video version of our gear segments at The Hockey Shop — think of it as a simulcast like TV and radio broadcasts of an NHL game — to bring you behind the scenes at Goalie Utopia and add visual elements highlighting new features of each piece. You can watch this week’s review below:
