EYECANDYAIR was able to catch up with a member of our goalie family

To do this special exclusive one-on-one interview!
ECA: What inspired you to be a goalie?
JK: When it was my turn at being goalie in my first year of hockey I loved it, so I never stopped!
ECA: How old were you when you started?
JK: When I first played goal I was 7 years old.
ECA: What is the highest level you have played?
JK: The highest level of hockey I have played was "A", but I have been a final cut for a "AAA" team twice.
ECA: Did you ever have a goalie coach?
JK: Yes, I currently work with Greg Redquest, at NTR in Newmarket.
ECA: What style of goaltending do you play?
JK: I play a hybrid style of goaltending.
ECA: How many times a week do you play?
JK: As much as possible.
ECA: What are your strengths?
JK: My speed and flexibility.
ECA: Care to add weaknesses?
JK: I'm a small goaltender at times that works against me.
ECA: Who is your favourite NHL goalie?
JK: My favorite NHL goalie was Ed Belfour, but now I would have to say, Roberto Luongo or Cam Ward. But you just have to look at my mask to see my favorite of all time.
ECA: What type of gear are you wearing?
JK: I currently have Eagle gloves and pads, and a Hackva helmet with an awesome paint job by EYECANDYAIR.
ECA: Do you have any game superstitions?
JK: I like to win them!
