Meet Shannon Szabados at Tendyfest 3 on May 27
Shannon Szabados is coming to Tendyfest 3.
The three-time Canadian Olympic medal-winning goalie will be on hand at Canlan 8 Rinks in Burnaby, B.C. on May 27 from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m., signing autographs, talking tending, and meeting fans as part of the Warrior Hockey contingent taking part in The Hockey Shop’s annual Ultimate Goalie Demo Day.
Szabados is coming off her third Olympic medal with Team Canada and was named the top goaltender at the 2018 Pyeongchang Games after stopping 40 0f 42 shots in a heartbreaking overtime loss against the United States in the gold-medal game. The Edmonton, Alberta-born goalie won Olympic gold at the 2014 Sochi Olympics and the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, and also has one gold and four silver medals at the IIHF World Championships during more than a decade anchoring the Canadian National Team.
Now, Szabados is the first of several big names to be announced for TendyFest 2018. Others will follow, so be sure to keep an eye on The Hockey Shop’s event page on Facebook.
Of course, a chance to meet one of the world’s best goaltenders isn’t the only reason to attend TendyFest 3, an event now being imitated all over North America. Far from it.
The biggest draw remains the chance to take the newest goalie gear, including the Warrior Ritual G4 line Szabados wore in Pyeongchang, on the ice to test it for yourself before you buy for next season.
It’s a one of a kind demo event, and will feature the all new CCM Premier 2 line that InGoal recently reviewed, the Bauer Supreme 2S Pro that launches this Friday (with another InGoal review that day), the Brian’s Optik line that InGoal reviewed in the fall, as well as the Ritual G4 and the latest from Vaughn:
The demo sessions will include SR and JR equipment sizes, and are first-come, first-serve, so arrive early if you want to take multiple lines for a test drive, and bring the rest of your full equipment.
Not planning on going on the ice? The Hockey Shop goal department has you covered, with huge goaltending trade show featuring tons of gear, pro services reps from CCM, Bauer, Warrior, True, Brian’s and Vaughn on hand to answer all your questions, as well as mask painters, custom radius demos, and goalie schools. They’ve also got big giveaways from CCM, Bauer, Brian’s, Vaughn, Warrior, True, Padskinz, Pro-Sharp, and many more. Plus, you can come say hi to the InGoal crew.
The Hockey Shop will also be offering special pricing for all goalies who attend the demo event for all regular priced goalie products and custom orders at our retail store 10025 King George Blvd, Surrey BC. Visit the TENDYFEST Facebook official event page to RSVP and follow The Hockey Shop on Instagram and Twitter for additional announcements as we get closer to May 27th, and if you have any questions about TendyFest 3 please email them at [email protected].
