InGoal Radio Podcast Episode 18: Stephane Waite

This week on InGoal Radio presented by The Hockey Shop Source for Sports, we are joined by Stéphane Waite, two-time Stanley Cup winner and current goaltending coach of the Montreal Canadiens. Waite, who began coaching more than 30 years ago, shared insights into the pro game, what he needs in practice to help his goalies find success (hint: the same things minor-hockey coaches should be doing), specifics on how he builds a practice plan and then how he wants his goalies to just play more on instinct when its game-time. It’s clear that the well-thought coach has evolved and he discusses how his approach to working with goalies has had to change over time and how he has managed to stay current in the ever-changing world of goaltending. We were thrilled to hear that InGoal is a part of his ongoing professional development! There’s much more in this lengthy chat we had inside the Montreal Canadiens offices – join us by listening today.

We share insights you won’t see anywhere else – and would love to connect for a conversation there: 

Waite has a video series for young goaltenders that we discuss in the podcast that is especially beneficial for goaltenders who lack access to a regular goalie-coach and need support with their fundamentals. The series is available in both French and English and is available both online and on DVD. As a thank you he is offering 20% off to all our listeners. Just enter the code ingoalmag at checkout.

To learn more or order you can check out the videos here, and don’t forget the code – use ingoalmag to get the 20% discount. 



Thanks to The Hockey Shop Source for Sports in Surrey, BC we are able to bring you this, and every, episode of InGoal Radio. Kevin visits Cam this week and talks about how to properly fit pads, why old guidelines using measurements like ATK are not enough and more.

David is one of the founders of InGoal Magazine which he began in 2009. Of course he finds time for some goaltending of his own as well, and despite his age, clings desperately to the idea that some NHL team will call him to play for them - though in his mid-forties (OK, late 40s) it'll likely be for a practice when everyone else on their depth chart has the flu and the shooter tutor has gone in for repairs.
