New Paperback 7 Pre-Game Habits of Pro Hockey Players now an app.
You’ve spent 1,000’s of hours and dollars training to be the best out on the ice. Now learn simple invaluable techniques of Mental and Physical preparation to set yourself apart before the puck even drops with this book.
This step-by-step guide to pre-game preparation teaches:
• How to create visualizations (mini-movies) to instill more confidence before
stepping on the ice

weaker before the game even begins
• How to control your emotions immediately with an “anchor”
• How to use a breathing pattern to eliminate anxiety before a penalty shot

performance is not affected
If you think about it, what really separates a Jr. Player from a Minor League Player? A Player in the AHL from a NHL Player? An average NHL Player from a 15-year Veteran?
At these levels, players are very similar in physical strength. They receive similar
coaching - both on and off the ice. And believe me, they all “want it” - badly.
It’s Preparation and consistently playing great. They don’t take nights off.
EVERYONE - from Squirts to the NHL - will learn specific
techniques that will raise their game to the NEXT LEVEL.

7 habits is an excellent exploration of how the advanced hockey player works.
Not only is this book a guide to the successful high level player, but a terrific
resource for the young player who is looking for that edge over other players.
I've recommended this book to all the players I coach this year.
