The Season Has Begun
After another very successful summer of goalie camps, another season has begun that will test the progress of so many of our students. Mike Smith and Peter Budaj are being considered for the Canadian Olympic team. Smith signed a lucrative six million dollar contract in the off-season: a culmination of a lot of hard work and battling through adversity since he has been a student of Jon Elkin's as a youngster. Another long-time student, 19 year old Matt Murray signed with the Pittsburgh Penguins and is enjoying a strong season with the Sault St. Marie Greyhounds (OHL), a team that Jon Elkin is consulting with this season. Jordan Binnington embarks on his first professional season with the St. Louis Blues organization after having won the OHL Goalie of the Year Award. So much more news has transpired to date so far this season. We will endeavour to keep you in the loop through this news page as well as on our Twitter and Facebook pages.
