What is the toughest skill to defend in hockey? A precise shot? Crisp passing? Skating prowess? To Anton Rudgard, Development Coach with QuickTurn Hockey, the answer is creativity, which also happens to be the one skill he was never taught as a player.
Rudgard played professional hockey in Russia, Slovakia and Ukraine, and played for the Swedish National team. Throughout his career he noticed the most creative players were the ones having the most success, so upon retiring, he began teaching creativity. His Global Skills Showcase presentation defines creativity before he goes into detail about its importance, effectiveness and how being creative improves decision making all over the ice.
