I love hockey goalies and their quirks. I love trying to see what’s painted on their masks. I love watching what different goalies do before the first period begins – and I don’t just mean the stretching. I love watching how they scuff up their creases, what little mini-drills they do, and so on. So I NEED to see this (bold emphasis is mine):

The [Calgary Hitmen] freshman [goaltender Juha Metsola], who dances in his crease prior to every game, kicked out the right pad twice to rob T.J. Galiardi and then Brandon Kozun on the rebound.

If/when the Thunderbirds host the Hitmen next season, I am so. there.
