Goalie Review is a for anyone who wants to gain more insight and knowledge on the technical and tactical aspects of goaltending. This is a place for coaches, goalies, players and fans to learn from the mastery and mishaps of NHL goalies.  Sit back, watch the highlights and try to LEARN from other people’s successes and mistakes.  Stay posted weekly and watch your save percentage increase.


Goalie Review is administered and written by Stefan Nichols. Stefan is the owner and Head Instructor of the Ottawa based Goalie U/Goaler U hockey school (www.goalieu.ca ).  Stefan has been a professional goaltending consultant for the past 12 years developing goalies of all ages. In his tenure, Stefan has had the opportunity to train numerous professionals, NCAA and Jr “A” goaltenders. In 2009, 10 of the 30 Central Junior A hockey league goalies listed have attended sessions with Stefan Nichols at one point or another in their training career.  Stefan’s eye for detail, implementation of the Hybrid style and ability to diagnose inaccuracy among goalies has secured him a position as the Ottawa Junior A Senators goalie coach. In only two years with the team one goalie was invited to tryout with the Ottawa 67’s and the other is talking to numerous NCAA division one schools.


I look forward to meeting you at the rink or on Goalie Review. If you have a question or want me to review your game just let me know. Until then, be the hero and post the zero.


Yours in everything goaltending,
