“I want to get that puck with body position already established.”
For Vancouver Canucks skills coach Glenn Carnegie, it’s not just about teaching skills, it’s about teaching the right skills at the right time. Puck protection and other drills and methods Carnegie creates are born out of a deep understanding of how hockey players work, how they think, and what they need to feel confident.
