Halak Answers Questions from Fans
Jaroslav Halak answers fan questions submitted through Facebook and Twitter using #AskHalak


Blues goalie Jaroslav Halak doesn't have any social media accounts, but that wasn't going to stop us from letting you submit questions for him using Twitter and Facebook.

We received a lot of great questions from fans using the hashtag #AskHalak. We gathered up some of them and presented them to Halak after practice on Wednesday.

Here are your questions and here are his answers.


Jaroslav Halak: I think as a goalie, it's really good. When it goes down to a shootout, you just can't be nervous. You have to take it one shooter at a time. At the end of the night, you'll see what happens. As a goalie, I'm excited when I win. When I lose, I'm not excited.






Jaroslav Halak: It would be something special and unbelievable. It's a long season, but obviously that's the goal every season. Whether we accomplish it or not, it's up to us, the guys here in the locker room.






Jaroslav Halak: Actually no, it's just a number Montreal gave me when I first came over to North America. I just stuck to the number.






Jaroslav Halak:
That's a tough one. There are some when I was growing up, the western movies. There were so many of them. But I don't even know, I don't really have just one.







Jaroslav Halak: It's a Taurus because I was born in May. I put a taurus on, and it's wearing a goalie mask, goalie gloves and has a hockey stick. It's like a mad bull. He's just going through the wall, that's kind of like me.






Jaroslav Halak: The big names were Patrick Roy, Curtis Joseph, Mike Richter and Martin Brodeur…he's one of the best.





Jaroslav Halak: I've played only on three teams that had a mascot. I would call Louie (my favorite) so he's happy. On the secret handshake, certainly. We just have to come up with something.






Jaroslav Halak: I'm not really picky about food. There are some really good spots, maybe Wasabi Sushi or (Cafe) Napoli, the italian place in Clayton. Those places.






Jaroslav Halak: Usually the goalies are the ones that can't skate, but I was the one that chose to be a goalie. Ever since I was three years old, I just wanted to be a goalie. I finally started playing when I was eight.






Jaroslav Halak: I think the first game when I played there two seasons ago, I think that was special because it was the first game. This (most recent) game, it was just a normal game for me.
