show you some skating drills from two-time NHL Stanley
Cup champion, Max Ivanov. He worked with the Pittsburgh
Penguins as their skill coach, won two Stanley Cup rings, worked with some great players
that you may have heard of. Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin,
along with many others. So we’ve got some skating drills here. I was able to film with him in Toronto and I’m going to show you guys a couple of the skating drills that we filmed. So let’s get into it. Hey guys, let’s… Let’s think about drills. Yeah, just a little bit
