GSS Tim Turk

“The body has to be in control when we shoot a puck."

With over 25 years working at the NHL level, Tim Turk knows a thing or two about how to shoot a puck.

It starts with building a foundation of the stride release, Turk says.

“Building that foundation is going to allow these players to produce more power, save time on their shots, and be able to have stability and stabilize themselves, which means they can react all that much faster if there’s a rebound or a potential second or third chance opportunity when we do so.”

Have you ever heard the term “skill stacking?”

Scott Jones' 54-minute presentation is filled with tips and tricks for getting the most out of skill stacking.

Specifically for merging a punch jam, jam turn and cross body tap together to evade pressure and create space.

But don’t be in a hurry to learn skill stacking. It takes time to perfect.

"Skating in a linear direction is no longer enough."

In any competitive sport, if you want to succeed, you need look for an edge.

In hockey, that includes skating, according to skills coach Aleš Hybner — the founder of Elite Hockey Training Center in the Czech Republic.

“Nowadays hockey is faster and requires the constant reaction and change of directions. So you need to work on all advanced skating skills as much as you can,” said Hybner. “Skating in a linear direction is no longer enough. Lateral movements are currently one of the most widely used skating skills of elite players.”

GSS-Darren-Rommerdahl

It’s about building confidence.

Calgary Flames player development coach, Darren Rommerdahl showed us how he works on skills in-season, specifically with a player returning from an injury.

“A key thing that we try to do when we get a player ready to go back into action is we need to have him very confident,” said Rommerdahl. “Not only confident that he is healed and ready to play, but sometimes we’re working with players that… haven’t played in a while. I’m trying to get them to get the confidence so that when they step back in ready to play, that they can contribute to the team success right off the hop.”
