Kevin Woodley is the Vancouver correspondent for NHL.com & managing partner for InGoal Magazine.  InGoal Magazine is the number one resource for goaltenders - an online magazine and a podcast serving goalies, coaches, parents and fans of goaltending around the world.  Kevin gets 5 from The Academy:

Academy of Goaltenders:  When did you start playing goal and why?

Kevin:  "Age 35. I was hired to write for and edit Goalie News Magazine by Canucks goalie coach Ian Clark, and editing his technical articles opened up a whole new world of terminology and understanding that expanded my ability to have better conversations about the position with NHL goalies. I knew I had to try these things myself, to be able to feel it and not just talk it, and was immediately hooked."


Academy of Goaltenders:  What is your favorite hockey moment?

Kevin:  "Covering the 2010 Vancouver Olympics for the Associated Press and getting to lead the first print interview with Sidney Crosby after the golden goal, then having a special 1-on-1 with Roberto Luongo shortly after, a moment that was more than just an interview after having gotten to know him well over his 4+ years to that point in Vancouver."

Academy of Goaltenders:  What is you favorite band?  Book & Movie?

Kevin:  "Not a huge music guy, listen to a lot of whatever my kids have on now but on a long road trip by myself it’s probably the Beastie Boys on full blast … The Game by Ken Dryden … Top Gun because of one line I like to relate to goaltending: “If you think out there, you’re dead.”
 

Academy of Goaltenders:  Who is your favorite goalie of all time?  

Kevin:  "Tough to pin down one.  
To watch technically (and because we’ve spent time with him 1-on1 and he’s a great person too): Carey Price. 

To watch for intensity and talk gear: Henrik Lundqvist. 

To watch because I wanted good things for him because of all he did for the game and us at InGoal and me personally: Roberto Luongo. 

All time: Ken Dryden, but more for a personal family moment than just his greatness."

Academy of Goaltenders:  If you could give a young goaltender one piece of advice, what would it be?
Kevin:  "Get a membership to InGoal Premium, it will make you better … ok, that was selfish, skate, skate, skate … good movement, beating plays to set and square fuels everything in this position."

Academy of Goaltenders:  When did you start playing goal and why?

Doug:  "I started playing goal at the age of 8.  I started to play goal in ice hockey because growing up on my street there was always an older group of kids that played street hockey on my cul-de-sac. These kids were in high school while I was in primary, they would let me play with them but only if I was the goalie. The first time I did I was mortified but it turned out I was pretty good and these kids really built my confidence in myself and the game of hockey.  So I went home and told my dad I wanted to be a goalie."


Academy of Goaltenders:  What is your favorite hockey moment?

Doug:  "My favorite hockey moment... there are a few:  receiving a full ride scholarship to NCAA division I, being named MVP of my junior league, playing for Team Canada in the world ball hockey championships, having my goalie stick in the hockey hall of fame, getting to skate one on one with arguably the greatest goalie of all time Dominik Hasek, going to my first Toronto maple leafs game with my dad as a kid."

Academy of Goaltenders:  What is you favorite band?  Book & Movie?

Doug:  "Guns n Roses or Tupac,  Lord of the Rings & The Exorcist."

 

Academy of Goaltenders:  Who is your favorite goalie of all time?  

Doug:  "Favorite goalie of all time it is a tie between Dominik Hasek and Cujo. Cujo because he was a leaf. Dominik, I really liked him (getting a chance to skate with him didn’t hurt either)."

Academy of Goaltenders:  If you could give a young goaltender one piece of advice, what would it be?
Doug:  "Have fun! Enjoy the game! Hockey is a game it’s meant to be fun, don’t take things too serious, enjoy yourself at every level."
