Episode 156 of the InGoal Radio Podcast, presented by The Hockey Shop Source for Sports, features two great interviews with Calgary Flames prospect Dustin Wolf and goalie development coach Thomas Speer.

In the feature interviews, presented by Sense Arena, Speer and Wolf talk about the keys to the latter’s seemingly instant success as a first-year pro with an 18-2-3 record and .932 save percentage in his first season with the Stockton Heat in the American Hockey League. Both talk about the adjustments to pro hockey, from off the ice to changes on the ice that include using Overlap and a new technique recovering from it that they’ve dubbed “The Panda.” Speer also takes us through his path from minor pro to coaching, including lessons from mentor Mike Valley, with plenty of insights that will benefit other coaches hoping to make a career of working with goalies, and Wolf shocks us by sharing a Spencer Knight-inspired glove position change he made DURING the World Junior Championships last year.

All that, plus a return trip to The Hockey Shop Source for Sports for explanations of the differences in goalie stick curves, how each option sits and shoots, and a breakdown of all the pattern names for the most common designs among stick manufacturers like CCM, Bauer, True and Warrior.
