There is no one path to playing professional hockey, as Justin Selman outlines to begin his presentation. His route to signing an entry level NHL contract with the St. Louis Blues was through the University of Michigan; unfortunately Selman had his pro career cut short because of concussions.
He channeled his love of hockey into founding Topline Hockey, where he is now also the Director of Performance. In his presentation, Selman teaches deception: how a player can use their footwork and edges to maximize their puck touches, chances and time on possession. He uses the WHY method as a step by step guide to training deception, gives plenty of examples of deceptive movements, outlines the three phase breakdown of deceptive footwork, and ends discussing the importance of visualization.
