Robin Blidstrand is a young goalie coach from Sweden. Robin has been on skates since he was three years old. He started his playing career together with his two year older brother with the biggest and best known club in Sweden: AIK. As a young goalie Robin always played for selected teams in the top league. In 2010 he signed with MORA IK J18 Elite Team. In that same year Robin was forced to stop playing because of heart problems.
Robin returned in 2012 after a period of working hard on his recovery and comeback. He became an assistant goalie coach for his former coach Mikael Vernblom. Until this day Robin has been training all U18, U20 and Ladies goalies with AIK. Robin also works onthe GDI Campus (Goalie Development Institute). Everywhere he teaches, he offers his goalies new drill techniques and his message is nothing but short and powerful:
Achieve goals; be the best at what you do.
