How would I quickly break out from the small scene in Norway and quickly get picked up?
Do we have the next Tim Thomas, late breakout person, in me?
i would say your odds are very slim. you said you play in a small hockey scene, so your "elite" reflexes probably arent all that elite in the grand scheme of things. professional goalies have normally been playing ahd honing their skills at their position since they were young. and seeing how you are just now trying to pick up being a goalie at an age where goalies are already beginning to be scouted, id say you have quite a large learning curve ahead of you. best of luck.
