Excellent overview of current goaltending technique
le 7 décembre 1998
Brian D'accord provides the reader with a thorough description of what it takes to be a successful goaltender, from equipment selection, conditioning, and techniques and drills. As a long time goaltender and goalie coach, i was familiar with a great deal of the material, but for a coach not familiar with the position, or a young player starting out, it is an excellent resource.
The book goes beyond the usual "how to make a glove save, stick save,etc." to cover things like the mental aspects of gaoltending, and how to anticipate where shots are likely to go based on whether the shooter is on their off-wing or short side, for example. good visual images and lots of photo illustrations help to make this a worthwhile read for players and coaches alike.
