Tendy Talk Episode 20 - Don Straus
For episode 20 of Tendy Talk, I had the pleasure of talking to mask creator and mask painter Don Straus. Unlike previous guests, Don doesn't play hockey yet alone ever played goalie. His background is in motorsports, which freed him of any preconceived notions as to how a goalie mask should look when he came up with his now-iconic Armadilla goalie mask. Not only was the mask a work of art, but some of the masks he painted are icons of 90's NHL hockey from Brian Haywards San Jose Sharks mask where it looks like a shark with his mouth open around the cage, to previous Tendy Talk guest Kelly Hrudy's Hollywood mask, and most notably John Vanbiesbrouck's Florida Panthers panther mask. As we discuss on the episode, what we all remember as Vanbiesbrouck's panther mask wasn't the original design, the one to the right was. Have a listen to the episode to hear more great stories.

Tendy Talk Episode 18 - Ryan Besemer
In keeping with my mission to talk to goaltenders of all ages and skill levels, I reached out to the University of North Carolina - Wilmington senior goaltender Ryan Besemer. Ryan is a marine biology major from upstate New York with an interesting background. We talk about what brought him to UNCW, the difference between ACHA hockey and NCAA hockey, and how COVID has impacted his collegiate career.

Episode 17 - Kane Van Gate
Lining up time to chat with Kane Van Gate for an episode of Tendy Talk wasn't easy. I had multiple layers of 'his people' to go through, but honestly, I think it was his niece and nephew we saw in his movie Kane Van Gate's Hockey Journey. Eventually, we got time on our calendars though, and KVG and I had a great conversation and agreed that we need to get together next time he is in Minnesota.

Tendy Talk Episode 16 - Kevin Woodley
When I lined up Kevin Woodley of InGoal Magazine, NHL.com, the AP, USA Today, The Hockey News and so many other publications, I knew we might go over the hour I scheduled us to talk. I had no idea we'd talk for almost two hours and probably could have talked longer. I asked him about starting to play hockey and goalie later in life, how he got into journalism, and other great topics. Set some time aside, pour a beverage of your choosing, settle in, and enjoy this one!

Tendy Talk Episode 13 - Vintage Goalie
This week I spoke to fellow backyard ice rink builder and creator of the Vintage Goalie Brand Matt. Our conversation felt like two old teammates reconnecting after not talking for a few years. Our time was limited, but that's ok - it's just an excuse to record a future episode together. Follow Vintage Goalie: Facebook Instagram Twitter Music on this podcast is courtesy of The Zambonis.

Tendy Talk Episode 11 - Ron Tugnutt
This episode I talk to InGoal Magazine founder David Hutchison. Usually David is the one asking goalies the questions, so it was fun to turn the tables and learn about his goaltending history. We also discussed the origins of InGoal and what has made it the success that it is today. While this is the first time David and I have talked to each other, I get the feeling it won't be the last.

Tendy Talk Episode 8 - Donny Nadeau
This episode I talk to my old goalie coach from Saint Mary's Univerity of Minnesota Donny Nadeau. I get one burning question answered - why did they even pick me to be on the team, but more importantly I got to reconnect with an early mentor of mine who taught me a lot on and off the ice. We talked about Donny's journey in hockey, but also how he is able to recharge away from the game by taking annual road trips to visit America's National Parks. Be sure to follow Donny on social media to follow Big Red on those trips. Follow Donny: Instagram Twitter Music on this podcast is courtesy of The Zambonis.

Tendy Talk Episode 3 - Eric Richardson
For Episode three my former Saint Mary's Univerity of Minnesota teammate Eric Richardson joins me. Eric played a little more than I did at SMU. I was a backup JV all-star for four years, but Eric was a varsity goaltender who saw quite a bit of playing time. It was fun catching up with Eric.  These days Eric has his hands in a few business ventures.
