Summer Skills Series: How to Skate Like Jack Eichel

In Drills, Tactics by JasonYeeLeave a Comment

There are things hockey superstars like Jack Eichel do that you have probably never heard of before, but you’ve definitely seen. At Train 2.0 we aim to give names to the things that NHL’ers use so they’re easy to identify and teach to your players.
We call these things Magic Mechanics. These are the movements (mechanics) that allow NHL’ers to move so quickly and effectively with such little energy expended. It’s like magic. The magic mechanics that Jack Eichel uses in his stride are: weight shift, falling forward, outside edge land, 45 degree push, and circle recovery. These all might seem complicated, but when you see how simple they actually are, you quickly realize that it is not only possible to skate like Jack Eichel, but it’s is easy once you feel these new techniques!
