TSN’s Bob McKenzie with observations on the evolution of coaching

In Coaching Hockey, Podcasts by Glass & Out1 Comment

We’ve decided to switch things up for this week’s podcast. We’re going back to one of our favourite presentations from the 2016 TeamSnap Hockey Coaches Conference, TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie.

A living legend within the hockey world, McKenzie is arguably the most respected media member in the game.

He took to the stage in Toronto to present on his observations of how coaching has changed over his time covering hockey. As a former minor hockey coach and more than 35 years of experience covering the sport, few have better insight into how the profession has evolved. During the presentation, he shares stories of his time behind the bench as a hockey crazed dad with an important reminder to all coaches: At the end of the day, it’s just a game.

An advantage of being so well respected by the hockey community? A rolodex of essentially every coach in the NHL’s phone number. His talk features not only his own experiences, but perspective from the who’s who of coaching.

You won’t want to miss out on this essential talk for anyone involved in hockey at the youth level.
