On Ice AM Sessions:
The morning session began with players practicing on their edge work. The coaches then added pucks to the drills and included a shot at the end of the drill. Players got a chance to play 4-on-4 team keep away and then 3-on-3 with the defensive players’ sticks turned upside down. Goaltenders progressed into two shot drills that developed their recovery and reactionary skills.
On Ice PM Sessions: New York Rangers Alumni Adam Graves joined the players during today’s afternoon session. The focus on the afternoon session was odd man situations. Players practiced cycling and small area 1-on-1’s, 2-on-2’s and 2-on-1’s. Players also participated in a 6-shot and a bump and tip drill.
Off Ice Training: Players got a chance to work on their shooting during today’s off ice session. Coaches showed them the proper way to shoot followed by coaches or players picking a target then aiming for that target.
Dynamic Training: Led by Matt Radoslovich of Velocity Sports in Mahwah, New Jersey. Players did circuits of push-ups, tug of war, and balancing. Players then ran with parachutes attached to them to give them resistance to make running more difficult. Players also got a chance to play freeze tag with different variations on how you could move around.
Classroom Presented by Kumon: Players reviewed all the materials that were gone through in the classroom regarding nutrition by playing a trivia game. The topics included hydration, exercise, proper nutrition and rest and recovery.
