Learn why it's important to be both powerful and smooth in your skating actions.

Speed is a major key for all great hockey players. But what separates great from elite is a player’s ability to create time by changing pace. DB Hockey Factory Founder Daniel Broberg understands the importance of being both powerful and smooth in your skating actions.

In this video, the 55-year-old Swedish skills coach explains the concepts needed to add power and smoothness to your skating. This 33-minute video is the first released from our 2022 Global Skills Showcase, which was held virtually this past March, allowing the best skills coaches in the world to showcase their knowledge to a global coaching community. Broberg is just that.

Broberg boasts over 30 years of experience and has built a reputation for breaking down very complex skills and transferring them to players of all ages, including some of the game’s best. His list of clients includes NHLers William Nylander, Carl Haglin, Jesper Bratt, Marcus Krugger, and Oliver Kyllington. Most recently, Broberg spent time as a skills coach for the SHL’s Vaxjo Lakers. Prior to that, he spent six seasons as a head/assistant coach in the HockeyAllsvenskan league in Sweden. He’s also spent time helping out at the Detroit Red Wings’ prospects summer camps.

There’s a lot to be learned from Broberg, as you’ll find out in this exclusive video.

Want even more from Broberg? He joined The Coaches Site Founder Aaron Wilbur for an episode of The Glass & Out Podcast in December of 2020. In this episode, Broberg discusses his journey towards becoming a skills coach, how he’s been able to earn the trust of some of the game’s top players, and his philosophy on developing fundamentals skills versus more complex ones.

This video is available exclusively to members of The Coaches Site.
