Pre Game Routines

Do you ever feel nervous before a big game? Anxious, difficulty focusing or lacking confidence? 

According to Patrick Cohn of Peak Performance Sports, top athletes utilize a pre-competition or pre game routine that helps reduce distractions, minimize anxiety and allows them to slowly narrow their focus. 

If you’re not focused on your warm-up routine, distractions, past performances and noisy spectators create anxiety and doubt in your ability.

The 2022 youth hockey season is well underway. Being a goaltender is a challenging task and is the most difficult position to excel in. Goalies save plays for teammates, accelerate plays and increase chances of winning. 

Having the right stick is important for a goalie. If you’re looking for a new goalie stick, check out Pure Hockey’s selection below.

Minor Hockey Memories: Terry Ryan 

Elite Level Hockey recently asked a number of former professional players to reminisce about their favorite youth hockey memories, and to discuss what they would change about today’s youth hockey culture. 

Terry Ryan was the Montreal Canadiens’ first-round pick and the eighth overall selection at the 1995 NHL Entry Draft. 

A native of Mount Pearl, Newfoundland, Ryan represented Canada at the ISBHF ball hockey tournament and has been a part of teams that captured both world and national championships.
