Tampa Bay Lightning goalie

Andrei Vasilevsky is the goalie with the Stanley
Cup-winning Tampa Bay Lightning team.

His father (same name) coached the national
deaf Russian hockey team that competed in the
Winter Deaflympics.

The story today said that the father “knows”
all of the needed gestures perfectly.

Needed gestures – meaning hockey signs for
skate hard, check hard, move around,
freeze the puck, etc

or

something else (players’ private language)?
