The wonderful thing about coaching hockey is the ability to make decisions. Put your stamp on a team and a program. Call the shots, and then watch the fallout from those choices. Like any job, coaches approach their work with their own background – their own set of circumstances – which make them believe in the choices they make. As such, most coaches would approach each situation differently.

If there’s one thing we can all agree on, however, it’s that it’s never been more important to understand the terminology associated with goaltending.

And it’s not necessarily because we need to master that terminology in order to get the best performances possible out of our goaltenders. No, that’s why we have goaltender specialists like Pierre Groulx. Pierre has worked as the goalie coach with the Florida Panthers, Montreal Canadiens, and currently coaches with the Ottawa Senators.
