Been away from posting anything for a while now. Just been busy and lacked the time and motivation.
I found it interesting that the stats for the site show my post get visits every day and from people all over the world. While most visits to the site come from Canada and The United States, to date we have had visitors from more than 15 different countries.
I’ve had contact from quite a few people asking for specific information and asking me to continue with my posts about hockey.
I have a little more time now and a number of topics that I want to post about including the latest inspiration from watching the recent goal scored by Connor McDavid against the Toronto Maple Leafs. McDacid’s goal was awesome in many aspects; however, there was one particular aspect of his goal that stuck out in my mind.
Connor McDavid does one thing in particular that every hockey player needs to learn. It is an acquired skill. It is a skill that once learned and mastered will make every player 10 times better than they would otherwise be.
The sad thing is that this skill is not often taught or emphasized and sadly there are systemic issues in the process of learning to play hockey that cause bad habits and obstruct the development of this skill.
In the next post I’ll start a series of blogs to explain the skill …. how to avoid the pitfalls to it’s development …. and the essential elements to it’s development and mastery.
