PREMIUM: Braden Holtby Stick Taping (and we’re giving away the stick!)
InGoal has just launched the new Premier Edition with exclusive content for members. It’s a hybrid of magazine and website, or as we like to say, half magazine, half website, all goaltending. This is a short excerpt from one of our first articles. For more on InGoal Premium please visit ingoalmag.com/magazine
We were fortunate to catch up with Washington’s Vezina and Stanley Cup winning goaltender Braden Holtby a few summers ago. After one of our on-ice sessions he walked us through how he tapes his sticks in a video that lasted more than 10 minutes – and lot of tape!
That video is published over at InGoal Premium where he goes over how he tapes the blade (with portions in two different directions), the grip at the paddle and an enormous knob at the top (guess how many wraps? we counted…) that is about more than an easy pickup when dropped.
When he was done, Holtby signed the stick for us as you can see in the video – and on Monday February 24 we’re giving it to one of our InGoal Premium members! we gave it to Annual Member Jared Lovie of Sherwood Park, AB. Look for more giveaways coming soon.
If you’re already a member, please check out the full video over at IGP – and if you’re not – subscribe today! With almost 60 pieces of unique goalie content in the first two months, it’s well worth the price of a skate sharpening each month.
