Nutrition and You

As you maneuver around the ice during a hard shift…have you ever wondered what is going on inside your body?

Within 3 seconds of your shift epinephrine (responsible for fight or flight response) is released in your brain and triggers glucose breakdown in the liver which is sent to your muscles. Cortisol is also released by the adrenal gland, this process also helps metabolize carbohydrates into glucose for energy.

Your heart rate then rises, the left ventricle one of four chambers in heart pumps oxygenated blood into the body.  You begin to perspire and you lose fluids known as sweat.  Salt, potassium and magnesium are immediately lost.  Throughout your shift these are lost in nutritionally significant amounts.

2018-19 Stevenson Goaltender Development Program

Matt Stevenson was a passionate hockey goalie who died in a tragic car crash on June 24, 2011.  He loved the sport, the goalie position, and had his sights set on helping teach and develop young goaltenders.  In Matt’s memory, we have begun a GOALTENDER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM for the NW Ohio hockey community.  With the assistance of the Stevenson family, Sylvania Tam-O-Shanter, Mitch Korn, Shane Connelly, Jimmy Spratt, Josh Unice, Jeff Lerg and those who have donated to operate this program, we honor Matt’s memory.
