Hockey Dryland Training For Early Teen Players - Top Dry Land Exercises For 12-14 Year Olds


Hockey dryland training for early teen players is incredibly important, yet so many kids don't get any dry land training at all. At this age, natural talent won't cut it anymore, and the kids who train the hardest are the ones who are going to make it farthest in the long run. For a young player to stand out from the crowd, they absolutely need to be training off-ice. Here are some great exercises kids can do to get that edge on the competition.






Shift Approximation Intervals:


Shift approximation intervals are one of the absolute best exercises that kids can do off-ice. The reason is, these intervals will improve their overall speed and quickness, and also condition them to be able to perform at a constant level throughout an entire game. To do these intervals, run or stationary-bike in alternating intervals of intense effort and low effort in intervals of 45 seconds intense followed by a minute and a half to two minutes of rest. This will simulate the natural intervals of effort and bench rest that players see in game.



Squat Jumps:


Squat jumps are a plyometrics exercise that are amazing at building power and quickness in the lower body, which is absolutely essential for players to be dominant on the ice. To perform squat jumps, simply stand in a normal squat position and lower into the squat. Explode from that position upwards and raise your arms over your head at the peak. Upon landing, immediately lower back into the squat position and repeat. The goal is to constantly be in motion. This exercise is amazingly effective at working the lower body.

Maurice Richard, Guy Lafleur - Two Legends of the Montreal Canadiens



I was born in Montreal,Quebec. Growing up in Quebec, you experience all four of the seasons in all their wonderful, unpredictable ways. Winter (quite synonymous with Quebec) seems like the longest of all seasons. Winter in Canada can start in October and end well into April. As a result, kids need something to do to fill those months with healthy activity. Learning to ice skate, for most, is automatic...right after taking your first steps. I learned to skate at four years old and in my neighbourhood, it was like that for most of the kids. As we became older (one year later), most of the boys started to play hockey in the Mites league. Soon we were old enough to understand how to play the game...and, thanks to our Dads, WATCH the game and the Canadiens on Hockey Night In Canada!






As a child, my first memories of the Canadiens and watching games on T.V. was the blonde haired (in the 70's and 80's you new the colour of hockey players hair- helmets were optional), graceful and smooth skating Hab (nickname for the Canadiens, "Les Habitants", meaning French settlers), Guy Lafleur. To me, he was the MICKEY MANTLE of hockey. Larger than life, exciting and French Canadian, Guy Lafleur was the pride of Quebec in a province that needed a hero of their own in a time of political and social turmoil in Canada and Quebec. Guy Lafleur, hockey player, gave Montreal and Quebec a sense of pride. If you were French or English speaking in Montreal, you had something in common; you loved Guy Lafleur and the Montreal Canadiens. It brought a lot of us together, regardless of differences. Guy Laleur finished his career with his Montreal Canadien career with 1246 points and 518 goals including six 50 goal seasons between 1974-1980.


Unfortunately,Lafleur "retired" from the Canadiens at age 33 after his production tailed off in the '80's and it was assumed he was too old to play and retired a young man after much criticism and high expectations from Canadiens management and fans. "The Flower" would come out of retirement in 1988 and retire for good in 1991. By then,his skills had diminished (along with his hair) but fans were still witness to his past greatness, but just periodically.In my mind,what sends Lafleur into mythical status is not what he accomplished, but what could have been achieved. Lafleur partied and drank as hard as he played, smoked (by some accounts, two packs of cigarettes a day) and was involved in a well known drunken car accident that nearly took his life. While I don't admire an athlete, blessed with gifts that you and I could only dream of having, not taking care of himself, there's a certain amazement and wonder in what could have been achieved if this gifted athlete had taken care of himself off the ice.



When you're young, you think history started in your era. As we get older, we learn that there were past events and people that existed before us. In my small world, at an age to realize and be aware that there were those who made their mark before us, I discovered that "The Rocket", Maurice Richard played for the Canadiens from 1942 to 1960. He finished his NHL career with 965 points and 544 goals. Richard was the first player to score 50 goals AND do so in 50 games. In an era when 20 goals was a HUGE total of goals, "The Rocket" was a pioneer in goal scoring just as Babe Ruth was to home runs in baseball. When parents would speak of his accomplishments and achievements and how he was larger than life in the hockey world and in Quebec...I said "ya, right, bigger than "The Flower" and all his popularity, "Bigger, much bigger than Lafleur, he was the original superstar. The BABE RUTH of hockey". What!? Yes...adored by Quebecers and Canadiens fans alike, Richard played hockey in an era that bridged the radio and television era.


For the first time, hockey fans were able to see their heroes on T.V. and not have to shell out money for a ticket at the Montreal Forum. This exposure on television, combined with the Canadiens Stanley Cup success and "The Rocket" being the heart and soul of the team, turned players, until then, only heard on radio or read about in newspapers, into someone a fan could identify with. Maurice Richard, with his explosive speed, his grit, his toughness and his heart, became a role model and a symbol of hope to many Quebecers. Richard, during his NHL career, was a victim of much prejudice and stereotyping. French Canadians were seen a "second citizens" in this era of the Anglophone run NHL and Richard fought for equal rights and earned respect with his class, on and off the ice, in a time when French Canadians earned less money and were subject to unspeakable name calling from opposing players and fans alike. Richard, his hockey accomplishment notwithstanding, broke down the barriers between French and English, East and West Canada and the NHL "elite" that were ignorant to diversity and unaware that cultural and language variety is something to celebrate and not repress.


When the Montreal Forum closed in 1996 and the Canadiens moved to the present Bell Centre, during the opening ceremonies when the Habs legends were brought out to christen the new home, it was Richard that received the longest ovation, 16 minutes. The unflappable legend with eyes of coal cried. Fans cried. I think most who watched on television cried. Of all the memories that Richard left people with from the '40's to the day he retired in 1960, that ovation in 1996, 36 years after his playing days, allowed people to feel and show Richard what we felt all along...We never forgot you..We never stopped loving you...You gave us hope...We'll never forget!

The Old NHL Conference Names


If I had Gary Bettman's job for a day there is one thing I would do and it would have nothing to do with collective bargaining agreements, head-shot  rules, or bankruptcy proceedings/ownership issues surrounding the Phoenix Coyotes. (Although, if I had a second day in office, that team would be called the Winnipeg Jets again.) My one legislative act would be to reinstate the old conference and division names. The Clarence Campbell and The Prince of Wales Conferences. How much better does that sound than the Eastern and Western Conferences? And we'd once again have the Norris, Adams, Smythe and Patrick Divisions instead of the geographical names. Of course there are two more divisions now then there were before the name changes so we'd have to come up with the names for those. We could have the LaFleur and Gretzky divisions or maybe the Howe and Orr. Come up with a few choices and let the fans vote on it. Hockey has the coolest trophy names in sports. We don't have the Commissioners Trophy or the FedEx Cup, we have the Stanley Cup. It's not just the MVP or the Most Sportsmanlike, it's the Hart and the Lady Byng. We should go back to having the most colorful division names as well. It just seems like hockey was trying to be like all the other sports when they changed the names but I think those little traditions are worth conserving.






And while I'm on the topic old NHL names I really miss the old arena names. I know we could never go back to them because of all the money genereated by corporate sponsorships but I think the rink names now are really ugly. Off the top of my head, I believe there are only 3 rinks in the league without a corporate name. Madison Square Garden, Nassau Memorial Veterans Collesium, and Joe Louis Arena. I miss the names like Maple Leaf Gardens, he Montreal Forum, Northlands Colesium, The Great Western Forum, Boston Garden, The Spectrum. Those names sounded poetic and tough. Now all the rinks are named after banks and big corporations. I know it's just the way of the world these days but it's too bad. Just some thoughts from a hopeless romantic.

Learn How to Improve Your Hockey Game


In order to be great at something you need to practice your heart out. This goes for any type of sport that you are interested in playing. One of the hardest games to learn is hockey. But with the right amount of practice and the right practicing techniques you could become a pro.







One of the best things that can help to improve your game are drills. Drills are the specific time you will use to help practice your techniques and to improve. Drills can be practicing hitting, flicking or pushing the puck, dribbling, shooting at the goal, or practicing penalty shots. You will get a chance to practice these drills between two players or with the whole team.

However, some of us need a bit more help. That is when we provide you with the best hockey tips that will make you a better player.

1. Learn from what other and more experienced players do. There’s nothing wrong with going to someone else for advice. Listen to what they have to say and learn from it.

2. Learn from your mistakes while playing ice hockey. We make mistakes so that we can learn from them not so that we can repeat them over and over again.

3. Use what works and improve it. Sometimes we make shots that we didn’t mean to but they work well. Learn how to improve upon them and keep it.

4. Play by the rules. In order to do this you need to know what the rules are and how to follow them. Don’t be giving your team penalties.

5. Warm up before each game. This will make it easier for you to play the whole game without getting tired early into it. During your warm up make sure that you stretch out your muscles to prevent injuries.
