Curious to know the busiest day to rent a goalie?
With over 3000 games successfully saved because of Puck App goalies, we decided to do some digging in to which day of the week was most common for renting a goalie. Any guesses?
The overwhelming answer was Thursday. Thursday was consistently the busiest day on the app, followed by Wednesday. Saturday’s were the least likely day for a team needing a rental.
Why do so many teams lose their regular goalie on a Thursday night? Here are our guesses as to why:
- Most teams want to play their league games during the middle of the week (Tues, Wed & Thurs) so there are more games being played.
- By Thursday, the work from the job has potentially piled up causing goalies to stay late at work or are too tired from work so they miss their regular skate.
- People often take Friday off and leave on vacation on Thursday.
- Most goalies watch The Bachelor on Thursdays.
Maybe to save money on rentals this winter, try to pick a Friday or Saturday ice slot. If not, we’ll still be here for you.
