Landon Kells on What it Takes for a Goaltender to Make the Jump from Junior to the NLL
In Episode 2 of RUGBURN we talk with current Peterborough Laker (OJALL) and Calgary Roughneck (NLL) goaltender Landon Kells. Landon has had a run of unprecedented success; selected 12th overall in 2017 OJALL Midget Draft, 2018 CLA Founders Cup, 2019 IIJL World Junior Lacrosse Championship Gold Medal with Canada and named 1st Team All-World, 2019 CLA Mann Cup, and selected 46th over all in the 2019 NLL Entry Draft.
Pictured above is Landon accepting his Player of the Game award for his performance in the 2019 IIJL World Junior Lacrosse Championship Gold Medal game. Landon provides some valuable insight into his progression and the adjustments young goaltenders need to make if they hope to find success in their transition from Junior to the National Lacrosse League.
