Steven Poacher: Huge learning opportunities at St Joseph’s Coaching Day!

COACHING is very much like teaching; sharing good practice is an invaluable tool to have. You should never be afraid to learn from someone and to bounce ideas off each other. For me this is one of the most effective ways of learning. I don’t think coaching should be about...

Avalanche's Annunen is Ready for North American Adjustment

It's never a bad thing for a top team to have a goaltender of the future in the wings. But what happens when that goaltender takes a step back three years into the team's development cycle with that prospect? That's the situation Justus Annunen found himself in last year. After a dazzling 2019-20 campaign where Annunen led the Finnish Liiga with a .929 save percentage and 1.77 GAA, his game slipped well below his goaltending partner of Patrik Rybar with Karpat. Rybar is a veteran, so his performance was expected. But for Annunen, it was a struggle. An injury prevented Colorado's third-round pick in 2018 from starting the 2020-21 season on time and he spent the entire time playing catch-up. It showed in his stats.
