Future Pro Goalie School
Elite Pro Goalie Development
Steve McKichan created Future Pro Goalie School in 1992 after his NHL goaltending career was cut short because of injury. He had just finished his teaching degree and loved teaching the position. Steve had actually made it to the NHL, in part, because of his ability to be a student of the game. He learned the position from great goalie coaches like Mitch Korn and Ted Ouimet and knew he could really impact young athletes in a positive way as his mentors had done with me. He also knew that coaching young goalies would keep him in the game and ease his transition from being a pampered NHL athlete to a normal citizen.

The Hockey Shop
Hockey Super Store
The Hockey Shop is a family owned and operated hockey superstore that is located in Surrey, British Columbia. Rod and Ursula Bolivar opened the doors to the original store with their son Chad in 1988, and have never looked back. At the time it was a humble mom-and-pop store that also featured the family dog, a yellow Labrador named Goldie. An entirely new store, three different yellow labs, and a string of renovations preceded the arrival of Ken Whiddington, his son Brad, and daughter Kristie, who partnered up in 2001 and helped bring The Hockey Shop to the next level of service and selection. March 2011 saw the shop move to a brand new 17,000 square foot retail location, securing it’s place as the largest independent hockey retailer on the West Coast of Canada. With a staff of over twenty-five hockey specialists, including eight goal specialists and four professional skate sharpeners: We Know Hockey. The new location features some exciting new developments for The Hockey Shop, including a Stick Demo Zone, complete with synthetic ice, as well as one of the largest goaltending equipment sections in the world.Our online store, thehockeyshop.com, has been in operation since 1996 and proudly supplies hockey equipment to every continent on the planet.
