Episode 139 of the InGoal Radio Podcast, presented by The Hockey Shop Source for Sports, features an interview with Alfie Michaud about both his career as a pro goalie up to the NHL and now NCAA goaltending coach, and more prudently, Canada’s National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, and his involvement with the Orange Jersey Project.
In the feature interview, presented by Sense Arena, Michaud, who is Ojibwe from Selkirk, Manitoba, discusses his experiences with the residential school system and shares thoughts on the lasting impacts on the First Nation community. He discusses the importance ofopen conversations about a horrific part of our history and its effect on Indigenous Peoples, and how they hope to use the power of sport as a vehicle toward educating young athletes about that history through the Orange Jersey Project, which includes an auction for signed jerseys for athletes including Carey Price. And since we caught him on a scouting trip for the University of Maine, we also talk about what Michaud is looking for when evaluating goaltenders, including one attribute that may surprise some young puck stoppers.
All that, plus a trip back to The Hockey Shop Source for Sports for a look the CCM 5.9 sticks, a second price point option with a lot of attributes we’d expect from a more expensive stick, and why you might choose that ahead of their Pro Return options.
