• In Team Reports, we look at part-time comedians and full-time goaltenders Ilya Bryzgalov and Marc-Andre Fleury and explore how their personalities impact the team around them; Pekka Rinne talks to us about how he made his first pair of homemade pads and his rise into the NHL; and Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford tells us about the importance of forgetting and how letting go has bettered his game.

• In Prospect Report we scout Russian goalie Andrei Vasilevski who made a name for himself in North America at the World Junior Championship; Ottawa 67’s star netminder Petr Mrazek’s dramatic saves, strong personality and stellar saves are profiled; Sharks AHL goalie Tyson Sexsmith talks about his younger days and looks ahead to his shot at the big leagues.
