Founder of GDS, Mike Buckley started the Advanced Development Program in 2008. ADP is designed for the elite goalie to develop their game and achieve their highest goals. In 2013 the ADP went on hold as Mike Buckley became the Pittsburgh Penguins goaltending coach and director of development. In that time, the Penguins won 2 Stanley Cups with Matt Murray and Marc-Andre Fleury. Tristan Jarry was named an NHL all-star, and the Wilkes-Barre Penguins of the AHL had four straight All-Star goalies, something never done before in AHL history. One of those goalies was Casey Desmith, also a ADP student. Now, GDS goalies get to learn from all the experience coach Buckley has gained since ADP was on hold. If you thought it was great before, we can't wait to see where we go now!
Accompanying Mike Buckley with the Advanced Development Program is former ADP student and GDS current Vice President Steve Mastalerz. Steve is a former division 1 college goalie at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, followed by a professional stint with with Manchester Monarchs. In 2015 Steve was apart of the AHL Calder Cup Champions Manchester Monarchs. Steve has been a GDS coach for nearly 10 years, along with a goalie coach with the Northeast Generals (NAHL) and Manchester Monarchs (ECHL). Steve credits his success and experiences during his career directly to ADP. ADP accepts 12 goalies per year who fit the model and are will do put the dedicated time and effort into the program. We are now accepting inquiries for the 2023/24 season. Please inquire below.
