How To Play Defense – Roles and Responsibilities

In previous articles I’ve written about the roles of a winger, and the roles of a centerman. In this article I will be going into detail about the roles and responsibilities of the Defensemen. I’m going to start by making it VERY simple, and then we’ll go into a little more detail based on zones. […]

I’ve been asked a lot over the years what I look for in a player during evaluations.  After watching my son during various AA & AAA Ice try-outs, I’ve been thinking more about this topic and wanted to share a bit of what I look for and some ot…

Summer Inline Skating Drills with Marsblade

May 11, 2016 Hockey Blogs No Comments

As a young hockey players I was always looking for ways to work on my skills in the summer. One summer I bought a pair of roller blades and was excited at the similarities to skating on the ice (until I tried a full speed hockey stop, ouch). Besides not being able to stop, I […]

It’s only an eight game schedule but my body thinks otherwise—the season feels like 80 games.  My legs burn with each stride while my lungs gasp for more air than a carburetor.  But we’re in the playoffs and complaining is for sissies.  Everybody’s whipped, even our rivals, and it’s time to separate the wheat from the chaff.  Lose two games and we’re out until September.  No one wants to hang up their skates in early May. … Continue Reading

Don’t Rim the Puck

A few years ago I was working at a hockey camp with Dennis Maruk (former 50 goal scorer and NHL all-star) and we were ending the camp with a scrimmage. One of the students playing defense rimmed the puck a few times to move it up ice to the wingers. I didn’t think much of […]

Sometimes it’s fun to pretend. If you grew up playing hockey and ended up in the beer leagues the thought has probably crossed your mind “I wonder how much better those NHL’ers actually are” or “I bet if I practiced a little more I could have made it”. Well, now we finally have a comparison […]

Beer Leaguers try Chara’s Stick

April 12, 2016 Hockey Blogs No Comments

A couple of months ago I was browsing Pro Stock Hockey and saw that they had a Zdeno Chara hockey stick up for grabs. At 69″ long (from butt end to heel) it’s the longest, and possibly most unique hockey stick out there. Standing up straight it measures 77″ and is a ridiculous 150 flex. […]

Hockey in Sweden

April 1, 2016 Hockey Blogs No Comments

As a Canadian I’m always curious what hockey is like in other countries. I dream of visiting countries and little known arenas and playing hockey there. I was inspired by an article called how we play hockey in Sweden by Victor Hedman on The Players Tribune. While I might not be able to easily visit […]
