By Ron Davidson, Foreword by Ron MacLean

At last! A book that focuses on the development of individual hockey skills and promotes a mastery of body positioning, skating and stick work. Learning these skills gives players a strong fundamental understanding of how to move effectively on the ice in any gameplay situation.

The skills are organized in 4 sections: Fundamentals, Skating Techniques, Stick Work, and Dekeing and Deception. As the reader progresses through a chapter, the level of difficulty of each skill increases, ultimately covering every fundamental move and technique needed for an outstanding and total comprehension of the play. Davidson's progressive-learning approach teaches beginners the proper techniques, hones the skills of intermediate-level players and challenges elite players with the additional skills they need!

Some of the 50 critical skills presented in this eye-opening collection include:

  • Forward stride
  • Backward crossunder
  • Drive and delay
  • Heel-to-heel turns
  • Tight turns
  • Extending your reach
  • Receiving off-target shooting
  • The Forsberg deke
  • The Datsyuk deke

Ron Davidson played on Canada's national team at the Lake Placid Olympics in 1980. He has directed hockey camps, schools and clinics in Canada, the U.S. and throughout Europe, and he has directed schools and clinics for the NHL's Phoenix Coyotes and Ottawa Senators. His hockey-skill philosophies and teachings are seen on CBC's Hockey Night in Canada in a segment called "Think Hockey."

By Per-Henrik Gürth

Bestselling children's book author and illustrator Per-Henrik Gürth has created a colourful, lively tribute to hockey with this picture book for the youngest fans. The action-packed story follows a group of animals who take to the ice to play a rousing game of hockey. Highlighted on the pages in large type throughout the story are hockey vocabulary words and terms. The vocabulary ranges from the basics — such as team, net, shot — to more complex concepts — face-off, line change, penalty — and the author has cleverly used and defined each of them within the story. For example, on the two-page spread where the term power play appears, the illustration is of the two teams facing each other on the ice, five players on one side, four on the other, and the text reads, "It's five against four — a power play!" Every spread has at least one word or term, though some have more, and on two of the pages the words simply label things in the illustrations.

This terrific book could be used three different ways, within language arts as well as physical education. The fun, dramatic story can stand alone as a great read, with pre-readers easily able to use the context of the simple artwork to interpret the language, while the highlighted words and terms offer wonderful vocabulary enhancement for beginning readers. And the content provides an excellent basic tutorial on how to play hockey, and on team sports in general.
