*Coach Korn with Predators Pekka Rinne and Carter Hutton.

Now in his 16th season with the Nashville Predators (and 23rd in the NHL), Mitch previously spent seven seasons as the Goaltender Coach for the Buffalo Sabres organization.

His hard work, superb communication skills, ability to “dissect" a goalie’s game, and great sense of humor has gained him the respect and friendship of those he has coached and worked with at all levels. In 2010, “The Hockey News” chose Mitch as “one of the top 10 Genius’ in hockey”.

Fondly referred to as “Children of the Korn” (a phrase coined by Predator head coach Barry Trotz) these current and former goalies (many of whom are now coaching) have benefited from and helped spread the “goalie gospel according to Mitch”.

Besides having coached present and former pro goalies Pekka Rinne, Carter Hutton, Anders Lindback, Chris Mason, Dan Ellis, Marty Biron, Mark Dekanich, Dominik Hasek, Tomas Vokoun, Drew MacIntyre, Jeremy Smith, Magnus Hellberg, Marek Mazanec, Chet Pickard and Mike McKenna, Mitch has coached and influenced many others who have (in the past) or who are currently coaching professionally. They include: Mike Valley (Dallas), Corey Hirsch (St. Louis), Clint Malarchuk (Calgary), Olaf Kolzig (Washington), Mike Dunham (Islanders), Wade Flaherty (Winnipeg), Mike Bales (Pittsburgh), Grant Fuhr (formerly Phoenix), Steve McKichan (formerly Toronto), Ben Vanderklok (Milwaukee-AHL for Nashville), Steve Shields (AHL for Florida), Ty Conklin (AHL for St. Louis),  and Bob Janosz (AHL for Buffalo).

In addition, Mitch has trained countless others who now are in the "goalie business" coaching, scouting and training a "new generation" of goaltenders at various levels. Some include Nick Petraglia, Chris Economou, Justin Goldman, Steve Briere, Josh Hand, Bill Pye, Jerome Bergquist, Robb Stauber, Aaron Kinslow, Alan Avery, Karl Goehring, Laura Pecchia, Shane Connelly, Mike Lane, Craig MacDonald, Rich Shulmistra, Dan Kodatsky, etc. Mitch is truly a teacher and a mentor.

Mitch has 35+ years of organizing and running summer hockey programs. Mitch will personally do all the coaching for each Goalie Camp. He is absolutely “hands on”.



*Pekka Rinne training with the same "reaction cones" our students will use.
  • Mitch teaches all aspects of the Goalie Schools.
  • Who can match 23 years of NHL coaching?
  • Does anyone have a better resume of pupils?
  • Our system is not just theory...it works!
  • Our Defenseman Program is run by Norm McCauley and Patrick Higgins. Nobody breaks down the position better than Norm and Patrick.
  • Mitch will personally answer any question you have via phone or email.
  • We just don't hammer pucks at the goalies.
  • Each goalie will definitely be a much smarter goalie when they finish with our camps.

*Our "reaction cones" improve power pushes.

WOW!  3 years in a row Haydon Hurt has attended your Nashville goalie camp and it just gets BETTER and BETTER!  When we asked Haydon what his favorite part of camp was - THIS year he responded "EVERYTHING!"  And - everything means A LOT!!! Your curriculum is so impressive!  Everything from the classroom lessons to the TONS of ice time where the goalies are doing such a variety of skills and drills - Always something happening that is relevant to the game and the position!  It is amazing to see your staff so engaged with the kids on the ice!  We were very impressed how you break up the kids into small groups of 3-4 goalies to ensure they are receiving personalized and quality one-on-one instruction. Tons of staff provided TONS of individual attention!  The techniques you teach and the drills that the kids participate in have helped Haydon to set his foundation as a solid goalie.  Plus, Haydon had FUN!!!!  You and your staff were absolutely wonderful at making the kids work sooooooo very hard but have FUN too!  Thank you for ANOTHER fantastic year!  See you in 2014!

Best goalie camp ever! My son just finished his 6th year with Mitch and his top notch crew!  We are so fortunate to have such a professional and complete experience camp up here in Duluth.  Thank you so very much and see you next year!"

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for an incredible camp experience for Cooper.  Because the camp is so organized and well-run, you and the staff are able to maximize the time spent actually LEARNING and honing the goalies' skills rather than wasting time on unnecessary 'time-filler' activities.   Every single minute of the camp was jam packed with useful information.  He learned more in the four days of your camp than he has in the last two seasons of hockey.  We were thrilled with this experience...it was worth every penny spent.    We will be back again next year!  Thanks again!
