Goalie Holt is Butler’s lastline of defense
01/20/04 - If Mitch Korn is good enough for Dominik Hasek, Butler’s Jared “Bucky” Holt figures he’s good enough for him. Korn was the goaltender coach for the Buffalo Sabres during Hasek’s years of success as a National Hockey League goalie there. “He (Korn) ran a goaltending camp up in Buffalo and I went there when I was 7 or 8,” said Holt, the senior goaltender for Butler High School. “I’ve gone to 10 or 12 of his camps over the years. “My entire style of goaltending I learned from him.” The Golden Tornado are reaping the benefits of that knowledge this season. Butler is 12-4 and Holt owns all 12 wins, along with a 2.06 goals-against average, .909 save percentage and three shutouts. He has been a goaltender since he began playing hockey at age 7. “I’ve always loved the position,” Holt said. “You’re always on the ice, you have to be a good athlete and stay mentally strong.”
