Noora Raty is getting ready for the new CWHL season by stopping pucks in an unusual fashion.

The goaltender for the CWHL’s newest expansion team, Kunlun Red Star in China, posted a video on her Instagram displaying some slick agility skills.

The Finnish goaltender is widely considered to be one of the top female goalies in the world. The 28-year-old was named Best Goalie at the 2017 IIHF Women’s World Hockey Championship.

Finland won the bronze medal at the Vancouver Olympics with Raty between the pipes. She has been playing for the Finnish national team since she was 15.

She played for the Minnesota Golden Gophers from 2009-13, starting 138 of 139 games. There, she had a career goals-against average of 1.34. In her senior season she went 38-0 setting an NCAA record for wins. The Golden Gophers won the last 49 games of her career and two NCAA championships with Raty.

In 2014, she became the first woman to play in Finland’s men’s second-tier Mestis league.

The 2017-18 CWHL season begins this fall.
