Very important post here as we move into the summer from my buddy and fellow coach. @slugocki_hockey
If you haven’t checked our podcast we did together I highly recommend you do so, lots to be learned from this guy. And look at how smooth this dude handles the puck, like a magician with that thing! I’ve put the podcast link in my bio👆
There is an epidemic across the hockey social media world recently of “working” on stick handling by just seeing how fast you can move the puck in one spot... I understand people wanting to work on “trick moves”, just don’t expect these moves to transfer to when your playing a full speed game.
If your going to work on your dangles at home, get your whole body involved, don’t choke the life out of your stick with your bottom hand and work on moving the puck across different planes.
Avoid being the player that literally stops moving their feet when they want to start making moves around a defender. The best players in the world beat you with their feet/body then look to stickhandle around you.
I think @thehockeybeard and @nsa_hockey might agree with me on this one.
