In this Episode of the InGoal Radio Podcast presented by The Hockey Shop Source for Sports, Kevin sits down for a lengthy interview with Mike Condon, hitting all the points in an open and honest conversation about his career. If you love goaltending, we guarantee (or your money back!!) that you’ll enjoy getting to know Mike in this conversation. From riding the bus in the ECHL while writing a 120-page Princeton thesis, to starting a Winter Classic for the Montreal Canadiens, to a major shift in his off-ice preparation (hint: bench press and bulk don’t do anything for goaltending…) as he works to regain his health and NHL form with the Tampa Bay Lightning organization, this is one to bookmark and come back to again.
And from Princeton-educated goaltender we go to a Ph.D. researcher in the biomechanics of goaltending and our gear as Dr. Ryan Frayne of Dalhousie University joins us to discuss his work looking at both mobility and protection in Chest / Arm units. You’ll hear deeper details than you ever imagined – and some results that may surprise you.
