Having started my coaching journey at a young age, I have been fortunate to have over 25 years of experience coaching goalies of all levels, from NHL through beginners. My greatest strength is my ability to give goalies at those two levels, as well as any in between, what they need in terms of developing into the best versions of themselves.

Goalies are on the ice training more than ever today. Most have their own goalie coach for group sessions and individual lessons. Many of these take place in rinks that are not full size, making it difficult to recreate true game scenarios. In my opinion, a lot of goalies reaching higher levels are every skilled but lacking in the ability to read the game. The type of video we offer will bridge that gap, so goalies will learn how to read the game and read off what is in front of them, which will take advantage of their physical skills.

Who should work with Dan?

Any goalie looking to push themselves to play in a way that will allow them to excel beyond their current level. Dan promotes exceptional reads, skating, edge work, patience, and skill. No gimmicks. Put in the work and dedication, and you will be rewarded.

I worked with Dan for 3 years during my time with the Soo Greyhounds. He has a great wealth of knowledge about the goaltending position and will help make you successful both on and off the ice, regardless of the level. We spent a lot of hours doing video, both on site and remotely. Dan’s skills in that area will be a huge asset for any goalie looking to take the next step with their game.
