MCKENNA: USE BOARDS TO LEARN PROPER REVERSE-VH (Article InGoalie Magazine)

 

With the right pegs you can work and learn the RVH as well in the goal instead at the boards…

 

“It doesn’t help that just being able to practice RVH can also be problematic because the net often comes off too easily. When I left Columbus to join the Springfield Falcons of the American Hockey League, I found our practice nets were never properly pegged into the ice.

 

Sure, they had the old time practice pegs, the ones with the triangular bump on the bottom, but most goalies already know, all it takes is one solid impact and those posts are ruined for the rest of practice. They won’t stay in place. So the only time I truly had to practice RVH in a proper setting was during games, which is less than optimal for several obvious reasons. 

 

You want to train in practice so you don’t have to think when the real competition begins. So I was forced to come up with a practice solution.”
