World's Okayest Blog- The Game of Being Goalie

by Aaron Dell @ADell32 / Sharks Goaltender

My pregame routine when I'm playing versus when I'm not playing is pretty similar. I try to keep it as close as I can so if I do have to go in I am prepared to play. Coaches usually give me a day's or two notice when I'm going to make a start so I can mentally prepare myself in practices leading up the game. I focus on my tendencies with the opposing team and try to solidify those adjustments in morning skate the day of the game.

The only main difference is that I have to eat a little differently. When I'm not playing I don't burn as many calories so I watch more of what I eat. I have to eat a little lighter on the games I'm not playing but, that's the only difference in my routine.

Prospect Spotlight: Mark Shoemaker

by Jonathan Wold / sjsharks.com

Listed at 6'3", 187 pounds, North Bay Battalion defenseman Mark Shoemaker has the size to be a physical, shutdown defenseman at any level. And that's certainly more his style than of an offensive defenseman. In 53 games this season, Shoemaker has 10 points, all assists.

Interestingly, 3 of those 10 assists have come shorthanded, and all since Jan 27. While that may be more coincidence than a Brad Marchand-esque ability to pick up shorthanded points, this recent stretch does show that the Battalion coaching staff has been trusting him with plenty of time on the penalty kill.
