Latrobe senior goaltender Nick Loyacona
Most goaltenders are known for their quirks. What do you think is the strangest routine you go through?
I don’t really have any routines before games, but during the games I tap all the posts with my stick. It’s sort of a habit, but I guess it’s a routine.
What do you like to do when you’re not playing hockey?
I like to snowboard and snowboarding’s probably my favorite thing. But I also play guitar and hang out with my friends.
As a guitarist, who is your favorite?
Jimmy Page from Led Zeppelin. I think he composes his music really well.
Which would you rather be an NHL goaltender or a rock star?
Probably an NHL goaltender because I’ve been playing hockey since I was six and it would be amazing to play in the NHL. You can always have music as something for fun.
If they were to make a movie about your life, what actor would play you?
I would have to say Johnny Depp because when people look at my playoff facial hair, they said I look like a pirate like Johnny Depp in ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ and I like the way he carries himself and his acting would be a good way to portray me.
