It’s safe to say that Caps goaltending coach Mitch Korn is a genius. In 24 seasons in the NHL, he’s helped Dominik Hasek win four Vezina and two Hart trophies. He’s also led many of the goalies he’s coached, including Braden Holtby, to career years.
Every summer after the NHL season ends, the afflable 57-year-old holds Korn Camp, a specialized goaltending program for young netminders. This year, he’s holding eight camps, including one at Kettler Capitals Iceplex.
Last week, twitter user @GabzNasty posted video of Korn instructing his tiny goalies while standing in the crease. In this lecture, Korn explains why you shouldn’t put all your weight on your heels.

Yeah, I’m going to have to GIF that.
That poor kid. But it’s SO funny. Korn’s cold-blooded.
For more information on Korn Camp (which seems like a blast), check out this nifty flyer I took from Kettler in early May.
