I always believe by staying positive and focusing on all the skills of the game...the little things, each player will be more rounded, and thus more successful in their own progression through hockey. One of my quotes is "Success through skill development".

The satisfaction of watching a player progress and improve over a 7-month period/season is unmatched in any sport...this is where my passion and love for hockey sits. Working with players and recognizing them as individuals is a strength of mine...finishing every comment with something positive is how you get more out of a player.

Playing Experience
