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."

Hockey Hall of Fame Unstoppable features the most accurate and fear-inducing snipers that have graced the NHL. From early-days stars like the hard-firing Joe Malone and the swift-skating Howie Morenz to today's best lamp-lighters like Sydney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin, you can be sure that pucks are tickling the twine in Hockey Hall of Fame Unstoppable. Making the argument that a team's best defense is a good offense are the 32 players that make up the Hockey Hall of Fame's prestigious 500 Club. From its first member (the legendarily intense Maurice Richard), to its last (the highest scoring American-born player, Mike Modano), the list of members spans 50 years and 54 Hall of Fame induction classes. In this one-of-a-kind, offensively geared reference, celebrate each player from the 500 Club with an account of their most impressive marker.
