"A lot of coaches don't think balance can be taught, but I'm going to hopefully change your mind."

How did a 5-foot-9 defensive defenceman play 633 games in the NHL?

According to Mike Weaver, it had a lot to do with balance.

Weaver recently detailed the “art of balance” at our 2020 Virtual Hockey Summit, as the founder of CoachThem and Defence First Hockey School took viewers onto the ice for drills to work on keeping your head above your feet.

“One thing that I found out at an early age was how much balance I really did have,” said Weaver, who played 13 NHL seasons. “A lot of coaches don’t think balance can be taught, but I’m going to hopefully change your mind.”

Indeed, he did.
