NAX Hockey
Skill Development
Offensive specialist – Ex-NHLer Rob Brown takes skill repetitiveness /reinforcement and blends it into hockey IQ development. He works on stick handling, distributing and receiving different types of passes, and shooting with different angles and strides. He makes players think about split-second decisions, which allows players to make smarter plays during the game.
Defensive specialist – Ex-NHLer Jason Strudwick takes game situations such as board battles, playing open ice one on ones, and transitional game-play to create an environment to teach the fundamentals of playing without the puck. Also works with defencemen to develop interplay between partners by working on puck retrieval, puck movement and getting shots through to create offence.
