My objective is to help goalies dominate and go much further in their goalie careers than if they had not worked with me. I also Guarantee Results Immediately!
Growing up playing goal, I had an up and down career in the Western Hockey League playing 5 years, being selected to the WHL All Star Team and earning team MVP for two consecutive years. I also played at University of Calgary for two years under future Vancouver Canucks Head Coach Willie Desjardins and one year under future Pittsburgh Penquins head coach Mike Johnston. During my second year we were ranked #1 in the Country and at the start of the CIS Championship Tournament my knee blew up and I was unable to play.
The next year, I turned Pro in the ECHL and following year signed a Contract to play Div 1 in Sweden. I never fully recovered from my knee injury and had to retire after 3 years of professional hockey. Even though I was fortunate enough to be drafted by the NHL New Jersey Devils, knee injury aside, it is my belief that I did not have a strong enough mindset to pursue an NHL Career. Those mental mistakes I made inspired me to do what I do with goalies today.
Outside of playing, I worked at the Okanagan Hockey and Goalie School and moved into the role of Head Goalie Instructor working and learning alongside some goalie greats like Andy Moog, Kelly Hrudey, Grant Fuhr and Ron Tugnutt. I eventually left OHS to start my own hockey school with former NHL Goalies Darren Jensen and Steve Passmore. That was a great opportunity to work and learn from some more hockey greats such as Ron Hextall, John Vanbiesbrouck, Joe Sakic, Mark Recchi and more.
I was still looking to do more and Founded Puckmasters Hockey and Goalie Training Centers and early on had a blast training 3 young developing goaltenders: Robbie Tallas, Mike Valley and Eli Wilson. Two of the three signed NHL Contracts, and all three are now NHL Goalie Coaches.
I also had the opportunity to train many other goaltenders and players to move on to Junior, College and Pro careers.
