For Episode 39 of Tendy Talk presented by the BLPA Podcast Network, I chat with a goalie who played hockey when he was younger, but as a defenseman. He stepped away from the game in middle school to play other sports but came back to hockey his senior year of high school. Knowing the varsity hockey team only had one returning goaltender he thought he’d try his hand at the position simply to be part of the team, and give guys a live body to shoot at never expecting to get into a game – until he learned early in tryouts that the returning goalie suffered a season-ending injury off the ice. You can imagine how the season went, but Jake shares how he was able to keep a positive attitude through it all, and talks of how his teammates responded to the predicament.
