As the game continues to get increasingly faster, agility and quickness have never been more important in hockey than they are today.

According to Jenelle Kohanchuk, a former pro hockey player, current skills coach, and the owner of JK Hockey, it’s important to not only have agility and quickness coming out of the corner, it’s vital to load the puck to be a passing and shooting threat.

“Within agility and quickness, there’s lower body and upper body keys,” Kohanchuk said during her presentation at the Global Skills Showcase.

Edge-work, weight shift, and knee drive are among the lower body keys, according to Kohanchuk. Upper body keys are all about puck placement, including: hands off the body, keeping puck close to body, high elbow, and upper body rotation.
