For Episode 55 of Tendy Talk presented by the BLPA Podcast Network and The Hockey Podcast Network, I chat with Rapid City Rush goalie and Devenir Goaltending goalie coach Adam Carlson. In our discussion, Adam talks about not playing on the A team or even making his high school hockey team, but still having the drive and determination to play hockey at a higher level. He became his own advocate, worked hard, and eventually earned a D1 college scholarship, then was invited to an NHL training camp and signed a pro contract. 

Adam and I also talked about my idea for a beer league goalie camp. He took the idea further to make it an overnight camp, not just a local camp. I have to admit if time and cost aligned I’d be all over that.

Be sure to follow Adam on social media, and enjoy the episode.
