🚨 Tag a Goalie πŸ™ˆ
LA Kings prospect Kris Joyce working on his inside edges πŸ‘Œ. Yes, goalies need to work their skating too! Here he uses four pucks and spots his route each time before he slides. He uses his inside edge to push around the puck and carve his turn. Then explodes off of the edge to slide to his next destination. Edge work is extremely important for goaltenders in order to quickly move across their crease. If you're a goalie, give this drill a try πŸ”₯ #SkateWithPower

🚨 Explosive Crossover πŸ’₯
Stand on a line and point your stick in the direction you want to go. Get down low and transfer your weight as you crossover. Extend your outside edge and push as far and hard as you can, creating separation between where you take off and where your other foot lands πŸ’ͺ. After you explode, land on your other outside edge and aim to keep balance and control as you slide to a stop. Plant your feet and repeat. This drill is great for exaggerating the crossover as well as working on overall control. Try it out! πŸ”₯#SkateWithPower

🚨 Draisaitl Puck Protection πŸ‘Œ
Leon Draisaitl uses his body to protect the puck and score five hole. First of all, the awareness to feel the defensemen closing in on him is very impressive. Most players would panic and either get their stick lifted or mess up their move. Second, notice how Leon uses his body. He widens his stance and sticks his butt out to eliminate any chance of the D-man touching the puck. He keeps his composure and absorbs the contact. A quick move from backhand to forehand makes the goalie slide laterally and he squeaks it between the legs. Bend your knees, widen your stance, and protect the puck!! πŸ’ͺ #SkateWithPower

🚨 Crosby Tight Turn πŸ’₯
Sidney Crosby has countless highlights of controlling the puck below the goal line. Notice how he takes one subtle step away from the boards before he cuts back. This is to give himself space to perform the turn πŸ‘Œ. Many players skate in a straight line and try to turn back, which allows the defensemen to pin them along the wall because they run out of room. Take one step out and then cut back and you'll avoid getting pinned πŸ™Œ. Creating space in tight areas is an art, subtle movements are a necessity. Work on them! #SkateWithPower

🚨 Build speed with X-Overs πŸ’₯
Set up cones in a straight line, then make a curve to one direction or the other. Glide in a straight line until you reach the last straight cone. Accelerate as quickly as possible using crossovers to build speed around the turn. There are so many different variations and additions that can be done with this drill, but the overall concept should be the same. Accelerate πŸ”₯. This drill is great for players of all levels and is extremely game relevant. One example is having a coach give a pass right before the player turns, much like a forward supporting on a breakout. They have to quickly move up ice when they receive the puck. Try it out πŸ‘Œ #SkateWithPower

🚨 #TBT Analysis Segment πŸ”Š
Mario Lemieux lateral movement and fake outside, cut inside πŸ‘Œ. Mario uses lateral movement carrying the puck down the ice. The major takeaway should be the effectiveness of his fake. Most defensemen are taught to watch a player's body. Mario turns his shoulders and transfers his weight to his outside foot which forces the defensemen to stutter and cross his feet. As soon as the player moves, Mario cuts back to the inside. He doesn't just use his stick! This is a full body movement. Put yourself in a position that forces the opposing player to make a decision. If they don't respect your speed and take away the outside, then just keep going πŸ”₯ #SkateWithPower

🚨 #WorkoutWednesday πŸ’ͺ
Vertimax step ups 😳. Set a box, bench, or chair in front of the Vertimax and connect tension to your hips as well as your thighs. Step up onto the object and drive up hard with your opposing knee. Make sure to push your hips through at the top of the movement and squeeze your glutes. If you don't have a Vertimax, you can hold dumbbells or use a barbell on your shoulders. The tension on your knee won't be there, but still drive your knee up and hips forward πŸ‘. This exercise is great for overall top speed and acceleration πŸ’₯ #SkateWithPower

🚨 Turn and Accelerate πŸ”₯
Erik Karlsson makes this goal happen with his great footwork and acceleration in the D-Zone. Notice how he makes his turn tight to the net, cutting off the Bruins forward. Once he gains a step he doesn't get complacent, he accelerates πŸ’₯. This is a great video for players to watch, especially defensemen. Use the net to your advantage and make sure you get those feet moving up ice πŸ‘Œ. Once you lose a player don't slow down, continue to speed up! Master this play and you'll be an asset for any team on the back end. The long tape-to-tape pass takes some practice too πŸ™ˆ. #SkateWithPower

🚨Drill: Skate With Power Swing 🚨
Here's a video of Danton Heinen, now with the Boston Bruins organization, before his last year at Denver University. We created this simple drill to make him aware of his arm movement. We want to be very clear that by adding another stick the goal was to raise awareness of what the free hand is typically doing. We are not saying your arms should swing perfectly forward and back when you skate. Try this drill on your own, it's a great way to crack bad arm swing habits πŸ‘Œ

🚨 #TBT Analysis Segment πŸ”Š
Pavel Bure gets the first spot on our new throwback segment! No question this guy knew how to fly πŸ’₯. In this video we break down one specific crossover and focus on his outside edge. He brings his foot under his body which allows him to lengthen his push. Longer push = more ability to apply power. This is something you should try on your own. Aim to bring the inside leg back under your body, but make sure it lands on the outside edge πŸ‘Œ. Then push with full extension all the way through!
Let us know what you think or if you have any player suggestions for next week πŸ‘ #SkateWithPower
