I stand apart from the rest.
I stand as the last line of defence.
I stand in the way of what every player wants most.
I am a dream wrecked. A momentum killer. A goal robber.
In my world every puck is a threat, every puck carrier, an accomplice.
I defend my net on the principle that it is my home and that nothing comes in uninvited. Every save I make fuels the next and every crease I protect is my own. I am satisfied only after I stop everything.
I AM A GOALIE.
