Hockey Goaltending

Brian Daccord.

By Brian Daccord, 1964-

Any player who's ever strapped on skates knows that quality goaltending and winning hockey go hand in hand. As a goaltender in low-scoring games, you have little margin for error in trying to keep your team in the game. In wide-open games, you're the last line of defense with little support from your teammates.

A sure-fire guide to reaching your potential in the net, Hockey Goaltending provides a well-illustrated and comprehensive look at mastering the unique skills and challenges faced by goaltenders. Accompanying 135 photos and illustrations is detailed instruction on the fundamental skills required to play goal, strategies for dealing with every shooting situation, and complete off-ice conditioning programs.

Written for coaches and goaltenders in both ice and roller hockey, you'll find everything you need to prepare in practice and perform in games. Profiles of top NHL goaltenders in each chapter add even greater insight into proven techniques and tactics.

Hockey Goaltending gives beginning- and intermediate-level players solid advice for choosing proper equipment and mental training tips for handling the pressures of hockey's toughest position. Don't let this one get by you-Hockey Goaltending may be your ticket to becoming an elite goalie in your league this season.
