So I am currently wrist deep in a new startup company and it is going to be offered in many languages and this requires me to be on the road all the time. It's like the least difficult job I have ever had. But though I'm gone, my heart is buried 12 feet under Jasper Ave and 109 street and I read all the articles, watch all the highlights and swear at my Oilers App on the regular. The Copper and Blue are and will be out of sight for the foreseeable future but they are not even close to be out of mind.

How does a goalie coach help your team? I don't know, so I tried to find the answer.
Ron Tugnutt was drafted by the Quebec Nordiques in the 4th round of the 1986 NHL entry draft. He played in the NHL from 1988 to 2004 for Quebec, Edmonton, Anaheim, Montreal, Ottawa, Pittsburgh, Columbus and Dallas.
He also spent time in the AHL. He has had multiple goalie coaches in his career, he has been a goalie consultant for Hockey Canada and he's been a goalie coach in the OHL.
Tugnutt shed some light on what exactly a goalie coach does.

Today, we take another step towards that goal. Today, we are proud to introduce Matt Henderson as the newest OilersNation writer. Who the hell is Matt Henderson? Let's find out.
