Capsa Copley ready for first professional season

Neither of these goalies are Pheonix Copley, but we don't have a picture of Pheonix Copley, so how about one of Mitch Korn instead? As the joke around Kettler Capitals Iceplex goes, goaltending coach Steve Shields created someone in his own image, so out popped Pheonix Copley. One of the many pupils spread across the nation who learned from Mitch Korn, Shields had taught Copley at Michigan Tech, and before long Copley was passed down to the tree's root, who saw the similarities immediately.

The man who teaches the men in net

Five goalie camps down and two more ahead on another beloved summer circuit, Mitch Korn hopped from his equipment van outside the Ice Time Sports Complex with a throaty cold and an eager grin. The previous session in Connecticut had ended that afternoon, a Monday in late July, so the operation quickly rumbled toward this one-rink city, chosen because Korn's sister lives nearby and that means free laundry.
