    MEET OUR NEW CSDHL GOALIE DIRECTOR - JOSH LABUDA

    Josh LaBuda grew up in the suburbs of Chicago. He spent his final three years of youth hockey as a Falcon, playing for Bob Heelan's U18 team. Following his time with the Falcons, Josh went on to play Junior A hockey with the Hudson Havoc in the USPHL. After playing in Hudson, he briefly served as a “black ace” for the Chicago Wolves during the end of their season and playoffs.

    Josh first started with GDI USA in 2014 as a student and has been an instructor for them since early 2018. During his time with GDI USA, he has worked with goalies of all ages at the AA, AAA, and Junior level.

    Please give Josh a warm welcome when you see him at the rink!
