Episode 161 of the InGoal Radio Podcast, presented by The Hockey Shop Source for Sports, features a 40-minute conversation with New York Rangers legend Henrik Lundqvist.
In that feature interview, presented by Sense Arena, Lundqvist goes in depth on his remarkable 15-year NHL career, starting with his origins in the position and a passion for equipment that had him making his own pads from a young age. His attention to detail when it comes to gear continued right through to the NHL, and he shares insights into the true origins of everything from the Lundqvist loop — and they differ from the story told in the past — as well as the secret of those “Mickey Mouse” gloves he used to wear under his own glove and blocker, the story behind those practice gloves he couldn’t close in games, his work with Bauer and so much more. We also talk about his evolution as a goalie under Benoit Allaire, the keys to his success playing so deep at 6-foot-1 and his remarkable patience on shots, and how his equipment tied into the stance that made it all possible.
It’s truly a can’t miss conversation with one of the all-time greats.
All that, plus a trip to The Hockey Shop Source for Sports to look at the new Vaughn SLR3 pants, with an added layer of pro-preferred hip protection that used to only be available in custom orders.
