Last week I was making a goalie save edit. Which is just all the saves from particular game edited together.

And yes, it’s as awesome as it sounds.

Lots of goalies tell me they watch those edits before games to get pumped up.

That’s where I first saw Duke’s goalie Aaron Fenton make some insane saves. I have a personal goal to interview as many Kelly Award Goalie of the Year winners as I can.

So I tracked him down and it turns out he lives only 30 min away from my folk’s place in the Bay Area. Even better, he was pumped to have a conversation about goalies.

We hit on a number of great topics in this conversation:

  • How Aaron got his start in goal
  • Reliving that 2005 season where Duke lost in the finals
  • How his career at Duke progressed from backup to 2005 Goalie of the Year
  • What it was like to play for Coach Mike Pressler
  • How he trained to be an elite goalie
  • Breakdown of Quint’s analysis of Aaron Fenton’s play
  • Comparing his play to that of Tillman Johnson
  • Aaron’s mental approach to being a goalie
  • How he worked with his defense as a goalie
  • Leadership tips for goalies

Enjoy this conversation with 2005 Goalie of the Year winner Aaron Fenton.

The early 2000’s goalie setup = Eclipse original, 17 Diamond mesh, open sidewall. Who didn’t have this setup back then?
