How To Improve Your Goalie

The University of Calgary studied goaltender's eye movements and came to the conclusion that the best goalies keep their eye on the puck and the shooter's stick for almost a full second before the shot, which helps them make the save more often. Seems obvious, but apparently, a lot of novice goalies don't do this.

"I think this research is exciting because it's new information that can be immediately incorporated into a goalie's game with the proper training," Vickers, the study's author, said.
