How many of you guys are Goalies?
I know we're all fans, but how many of you guys ACTUALLY play in the nets?

Only one goalie on this huge board? I highly doubt that!

Not really a goalie, but have all the equipment and play in goal 1/2 dozen or so times a year.

Started goal in my 20's (am 42 now) as a spare goalie for a "pickup" aka "scrub" hockey group and was a regular goalie for a couple years with that group.

Goalie here!

MNWild9 02-13-2011 08:31 PM

i'm a goalie in one league and a forward in another. Have been playing goalie since I was 8

I remember there were more... I don't know why they're not replying, starting in too many games perhaps :laugh: (Don't count me, though, not a goalie yet.)

I play goalie for 2 teams and skate as a center for another. The team I skate out for I am the emergency goalie in case of last minute cancelation

I just joined. However, until I find a way to not keep giving up 10 goals a game, I won't call myself a goalie.

Part time goalie here.

here is me trying to look cool. Probably the 8th time on ice as a goalie.


progoaliemask 02-14-2011 07:25 AM

I have been a goalie for 30 years.

Harv 02-14-2011 08:07 AM

14 years

goalie here :handclap:

tp71 02-14-2011 11:59 AM

Played goal since I was six and have never looked back.

Another goalie here. Started very late, but worked my way way up in around seven years (a little more than one of them lost through military service and a torn ACL during/after that).

I don't usually frequent this board on HF, but tonight I went here looking for / wanting to create a goaltending thread. Just one of those nights, where I just felt the urge to shout "goaltending is the freakin' best job in all of sports"! :) I obviously don't know whether that's the truth, too many games/positions I have never played. But I'm a creative/offensive player in soccer, so I know what that side generally feels like. It's great, but nothing really compares to completely robbing a guy with the glove, for me. :) I would guess you guys could second that. Cheers!

***raises hand*****
17 years

Played out(lw) for about 5 before that, but found my niche in net.

seanerixon 02-16-2011 05:31 PM

I'm a goalie, trying to get back in between the pipes on the pavement :P

Kekumba 02-16-2011 06:09 PM

Was for about 10 years growing up. I stopped playing hockey a few years ago when I started college and working part-time.

what made you guys wanna be goalie? to me that is a huge decision when you are first starting out...

My older brother needed someone to shoot on in the driveway. :laugh:

I used to sneak into the house to steal a cushion off the couch to stuff under my jersey to use as a chest protector.

purpleparrots30 02-16-2011 10:18 PM

after seeing mike richter play i knew i wanted to play net

Goom 35 02-16-2011 10:28 PM

Started playing goalie around 10 because I wound up being the best one at it in the HOOD. Playing goalie is fun but has lost a little of it's luster with age. Sometimes I wish I could just cruise around without a defensive care in the world like the players in my beer league.:laugh:

fyrestorm 02-17-2011 09:16 PM

What do you mean, "What made us want to be a Goalie?" Haven't you figured that out yet? We goalies are crazier than ****house rats!!! What other explanation could there be, especially with you guys taking slap shots at us from inside the faceoff dots, and running all over us and then saying, "Sorry, dude, couldn't stop"? Then again, some of us look up to the old schoolers like Ron Hextall and Billy Smith, so skaters, keep that tucked away in the back of your minds the next time you come anywhere near our crease.... :nod: :handclap: :yo: :naughty: ;)

goaliecrease 02-18-2011 01:33 AM

Holy crap, I go away for a day, and look at all the goalies!!!
