In the feature interview, presented by Sense Arena, we talk at length with Desbiens about everything from the disappointment of having the Women’s World Championships cancelled at the last minute, the excitement of getting her new CCM EFlex 5 All Out set up with throwback Heaton Helite 10 graphics (and the story behind it), and what this change in the schedule does to already strained attempts to prepare for the 2022 Winter Olympics next spring without the benefit of any high level competition for well over a year.
Desbiens also shares great stories about her roots in the position as the youngest sibling in a family of five, and a sometimes difficult path playing against boys in minor hockey that included being cut at higher levels by coaches that admitted they just weren’t interested in developing a female goalie, then having parents at the lower levels upset because she was too good. She also shares some great advice from a record-setting college career at the University of Wisconsin, why she took a year off from hockey after the last Olympics in 2018, and the important lessons she has learned on and off the ice since, whether it’s how to treat practice or how coaching younger goalies can help make you better too.
All that plus another trip to The Hockey Shop — actually we meet Cam from the Hockey Shop at a local rink this time to properly test out the new CCM EFlex5 5.9 line to help you understand the key differences and benefits of the lower price point options in the CCM family.
