Episode 163 of the InGoal Radio Podcast, presented by The Hockey Shop Source for Sports, features San Jose Sharks goalie Zach Sawchenko on his fascinating path to the NHL.
In that feature interview, presented by Sense Arena, Sawchenko walks us through his journey from going undrafted out of the WHL (a surprise to many, including here at InGoal), and seemingly walking away from pro hockey to go to school and play at the University of Alberta, to signing quirk the Sharks and making his NHL debut this season, including his first win a couple weeks ago against Jonathan Quick and the Los Angeles Kings. It’s been a fascinating journey for Sawchenko, one filled with lessons that the 24-year-old Calgary native shares openly in this extensive interview about his transition to the top.
All that, plus a trip to The Hockey Shop Source for Sports to look at how different brands of pads fit different even when they’re all listed as the same size. Sometimes there are even differences from one model to the next in the sae brand, and Cam explains it all.
