Jason LaBarbera has always been on the bulky side which hampered his goaltending movements.
For the summer Jason LaBarbera hired a nutritionist that cooked healthy meals and got him to eat smaller quantities but more often.
"It's not that I ate bad. I would eat too much," he said. "It's hard not to. Coming from a family like I come from, you always had to eat what was in front of you. I haven't felt this good in my whole life, I know I can be a great goalie for this team."
