When it comes to developing a dangerous offensive player, there are many approaches that coaches can take.
For Philadelphia Flyers Player Development coach John Riley, it all starts with the stick.
Riley spoke at our Global Skills Showcase on how to create options by connecting a player’s stick, hands and body.
According to Riley, the advancements in stick technology has played a big role in how we play the game today. By teaching young players how to use their stick as a tool and connecting it to the body, Riley believes we can help players become a more consistent offensive threat.
“…we can get our hands in proper position, get the puck in the proper position and truly utilize top hand dexterity to create options for ourself by getting the puck in the right spot, and separating our upper body and lower body,” says Riley.
