The secret behind Igor Shesterkin’s success? A young Tuukka Rask training with Tae Kwon Do in the offseason? The evolution of Finnish goaltending We get into it all in Episode 173 of the InGoal Radio Podcast, presented by The Hockey Shop Source for Sports, with goalie coach Marko Torenius.
In the feature interview, presented by Sense Arena, Torenius breaks down the rise of Shesterkin, who he worked with in the KHL for more than five seasons alongside fellow goalie coach Rashit Davydov, and shares insights and anecdotes from 25 seasons as a goalie coach in Finland and Russia, including the differences in how each country trains goalies. Torenius also shares thoughts from his work updating the Finnish curriculum last season, and his annual off-season work with a deep list of Finnish NHL goalies, including Ville Husso, Mikko Koskinen and Joonas Korpisalo.
All that, plus a trip to The Hockey Shop Source for Sports for a look at the new Bauer Mach sticks.
