I cover the AHL Houston Aeros for, which has focused my passion for goaltending on minor league goalies mainly in the AHL. To stay abreast of every last drop of AHL goalie news, follow me at @InGoalMagAHL on Twitter while the big news, analysis, etc. will be posted here at I was so inspired by watching the goalies here in Houston a few years ago that I went out and learned to skate and play hockey in order to become a goalie myself. So far I'm still more sieve than goalie, but I've never had more fun being so terrible at something!

    I hope Tyler keeps improving as he’s done season by season. He could very well find himself in the backup seat behind Anderson for the Avs after this season since Budaj will be an UFA after this season.

    Yeah, he was very good last night. Very composed and steady no matter the pressure on him. Love to see that in a goalie. I think you’re right, if he has a knock out year, Colorado is gonna have to start showing him some love. He’s an RFA at the end of the season, so now’s the time.
