This week on InGoal Radio presented by The Hockey Shop Source for Sports, we are joined by Sean Burke, 2-time Olympian, who spent almost 20 years standing in front of an NHL net before transitioning to roles a a coach and now in management. You’ll enjoy this lengthy look back at Burke’s career and many experiences in the game. First goalie coach? Johnny Bower. A junior enforcer? Not quite, but the expectations that came with being the tallest player on his junior team were not the norm for a goaltender then, or now. And speaking of size, how about facing Darren Pang in the NHL? And as we have just passed Mothers Day, Burke apologizes to his family for what he put them through having to watch him play goal – now that he has experienced the challenges of being a goalie-dad.
