2017 Hockey Coaches Conference
Topic: Teaching Puck Protection
Presenter: Pavel Barber
Pavel Barber is a local skills instructor here in Vancouver who specializes in a wide range of technical hockey skills. He joined our conference this summer to provide an on-ice demonstration teaching the finer points of protecting the puck and puck possession.
You know who’s good at protecting the puck? Sidney Crosby. You know who else? Every hockey player who plays in the NHL. For Barber, the ability to protect the puck is a prerequisite for every level – it’s a skill you need to have, and the best players have the skill in abundance.
