InGoal Radio Podcast Episode 24: Fred Brathwaite, Free Agency, Luongo and Knee Protection

In this Episode of the InGoal Radio Podcast presented by The Hockey Shop Source for Sports we begin with a roundup of all things goaltending in free agency. Hear some behind the scenes insight into what went on as the annual game of goaltending musical chairs took place on July 1st, including a look back on some memorable moments in the career of the man who skated into retirement, undoubtedly on on the road towards the Hall of Fame, Roberto Luongo. And you won’t want to miss a special story as we hear from Lu’s goalie-partner who played a key role in one of the most famous 3-minute bathroom breaks in NHL history.

Our feature guest, Fred Brathwaite is one of the most personable people in the game, Freddie had a lengthy pro career in the NHL and in Europe and has gone on to become a goaltending coach with both Hockey Canada and at the NHL level. You’ll enjoy his stories and his insight having turned a 5’7″ frame into a 254-game NHL career that included sharing the crease with legends such as Fuhr and CuJo, to name a few.

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.
