InGoal Radio Podcast Episode 21: John Stevenson – Sports Psychologist for Braden Holtby, Carter Hart plus Options for your steel with the Hockey Shop

This week InGoal Radio presented by The Hockey Shop Source for Sports, is one to pay close attention to. We all learn about gear and technique but if it’s true that the game is 80 or 90 percent mental then Dr. John Stevenson is someone you need to listen carefully to. He has guided Braden Holtby and Carter Hart since both were young. Stevenson started as a goaltending coach – right up to the NHL level – and transitioned into practice as a sports psychologist. In fact, when Holtby won the cup, after his family, Stevenson was the first person he thanked saying he wouldn’t have been there without him. Imagine what you could learn….

In the interview we talk about a workshop Stevenson is presenting across the country with another well-known goaltending mindset expert, Pete Fry (himself an NHL-drafted goaltender). The first sessions will be in Vancouver June 22/23.

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.
