Rbk Trivia Challenge – July 27 – August 1

Each correct answer is awarded one point (unless otherwise noted) towards to final rankings in the Rbk Challenge. Incorrect answers are worth zero points.

Answers must be emailed before goalie takes the ice for the next session to elitegoaltending@yahoo.com. No answers will be accepted after the goalie’s session has begun. Once answers turned in (at camp or via email), all answers are final


This week’s trivia focuses on articles from the Elite Goaltending Blog.

Note to all goalies, no points will be awarded for answering the question with the entire text of the blog the question references.

  1. Dan Daccord’s thoughts in tryouts were posted recently. One of his six points goalies need to keep in their mind while going through the tryout sessions is to compete on every shot. Why?
  2. In the post discussing Nabakov and his leading Team Russia to a World Championship Gold Medal, a reason was given as to why many goalies never get the chance to play at the highest levels. What was the reason?
  3. What is the reason why many back-up goalies never become starters according to the post “Quotes from Osgood All Young Goalies Should Memorize”?
  4. According to the Dan Blackburn article republished on the blog, what separates greatness in goaltending from mediocrity?
  5. During last weekend’s on-ice session, what is the one thing (aside from allowing a goal against) a goalie should never allow to happen when their team is on the power play and the opposing team dumps the puck directly on net to make the goalie play the puck?
  6. When Leland Irving hit a rough spot in his career (“Leland Irving a Model for Dealing with Adversity”) what did he do to improve his play?
  7. In “A Quick Word on AAA Tryouts” two wise phrases were suggested for goalies to remember. What were they?
  8. Three reasons were given in the “Stanley Cup Game 2 Goalie Recap” why goalies should play the puck outside of their crease when the opposing team dumps it in the goalie’s zone. They are? NOTE – GENERALLY WE DO NOT RECOMMEND GOALIES IN SQUIRTS OR BELOW PLAY THE PUCK OUTSIDE OF THEIR NET.
  9. From his article, Dan Blackburn suggests what technique to assist in focusing for the next shot after allowing a goal?
  10. A recent post “How Things Can Change Quickly for Goalies – Lesson from the NHL for Younger Goalies” discussed the goalie situation in Nashville and listed three steps each goalie can take to avoid becoming being benched. What are they?
