General Information About The Goalie Position

The goalie is the player who wears the most equipment. This is because the goalie has to block shots up to 100 miles per hour. Because of this the goalie is considered the most valuable player on a team because if he doesn't let up any goals then, assuming your team scores at least once, the team will win.
