But what is? Thankfully, these soon to be pros certainly make an effort.
My favorite fresh faced youngster is no exception.
This is Joe Keyser, and before you start worrying about the FBI knocking on your door know that he is 18.
He's put up some nice numbers in the Metropolitan Junior Hockey League. His 3.28 GAA and .884 SV% have earned him goaltender of the week as well as two shut-outs.
And I can't forget how fond he is of the poke-check. Is there anything better than a goalie that loves to poke check?
