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.
