That day at practice was about me getting to know the area between the posts and how I would perform practice before we played Glennallen. The next day Kegan was there to show me a few more tricks when moving inside the goalie crease. He gave me a thorough example of moving from post to post to stop incoming shots or wrap-a-rounds. He noted when dropping down into the butterfly position, my upper body shouldn’t move at all unless needed. “When getting down into the goalie stance, your back should be straight and your knees should be bent enough to get your butt down, but also keep that stick flat on the ice and catching glove up,” he said. During practice the team shot an enormous amount of pucks at me to get me ready for the game the next day.
