A new thing that's popping up is adult beginner hockey/skating. Understandably it can be embarassing for an adult at the notion of learning to skate with little kids but these programs are designed for adults wanting to play. I'm sure they exist in edmonton.
Now goaltending, its going to be a bit of a process for you, can't possibly go from non-skater to goalie overnight. I'd highly reccomend a year of playing forward first to learn the skating and shooting, then a year of defense to help with the backwards skating first. It will also help your play, goalies need to understand the thought process of the forwards attempting to score on them as well as their own defense.
