A few days after my latest NHL.com article on Michael Houser was posted, I was approached by Frank Rekas from The Rat Trick for an interview on Houser and his potential as a future Panthers goaltender. Below is the intro paragraph from the interview, along with a link to the full article. A special thanks to Frank and The Rat Trick for reaching out to The Goalie Guild for my insights on Houser and his incredible story!
Last week it was announced that the Florida Panthers had signed free agent invitee, goaltender Michael Houser to an entry level contract with the club after an impressive showing at the Panthers developmental camp. Houser as you may recall and read here, is a very special young man who has had to overcome a birth defect to get where he is today. I had the chance this past weekend to chat briefly with independent goaltening scout Justin Goldman of The Goalie Guild about Michael. Justin also wrote a piece on Michael Houser this past Saturday for NHL.com.
Justin’s answers are his own, and I think that between these few questions, and the article that he did for NHL.com, you’ll see that Michael does have a chance to succeed. However he will most likely have to work harder than his competition, but that appears to be something that he’s already used to. [Click above to read the full article and interview]
