How NHL Players Train & Why They Choose HockeyShot

Nobody knows how to keep their game sharp like an All-Star NHL Hockey Player. HockeyShot has a long-standing relationship with some of the best of the best in the NHL, and is always pumped to be able to help them improve their training. We’ve gathered some of our favorite NHL Hockey players to give us their thoughts on the new Hockey Shot Product Line Up.

If you don’t know John Tavares you may be living under a rock. After being selected first overall by the New York Islanders in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, Tavares went on to become Captain of the New York Islanders and has arguably become one of the top ice hockey players in the NHL. Recently he signed a 7-year, $77 million deal with the Toronto Maple Leafs, his hometown team.

John plays center so he knows a thing or two about needing to train all aspects of your game to stay on top. John especially loves the Hockey Shot Passer Pro.

“I’m always looking for an edge to my game. HockeyShot products, like the Passer Pro, are great to help keep my puck handling & shooting sharp during the summer. All of their products help me to prepare better for the next season.”
— When asked, John told us

Next up we have one of the darlings of Finnish hockey, Aleksander Barkov. The son of a former Russian national team member, Barkov was chosen as the 2nd overall pick in 2013 by the Florida Panthers. He is an offensive threat and an absolute inspiration for any youngsters looking to get excited about playing ice hockey.

One of the reasons Barkov plays with such high confidence is he knows the power of at home training. HockeyShot has been right alongside Barkov, helping him develop his skills and get him ready for the NHL level.

“I have always been a big fan of shooting pucks during the summer. HockeyShot products took it to another level. Now, I’m not only shooting pucks… I can dribble, pass, sauce and practice one timers. Allstar tiles are amazingly slick and you just can’t get any closer to real ice feeling.  Overall, the products are a lot of fun and help preparing me for on-ice situations.”
— As Aleksander said himself

Fun and training? Sounds like a win-win to us!

Continuing the pedigree, we have Jordan Staal. A native of Thunder Bay, Ontario, Jordan grew up playing hockey with his three brothers on the outdoor rink built by their father. All 4 boys later grew up to become massive ice hockey threats, with all of them making their NHL debut between 2003-2013.

Jordan was selected at No. 2 in the NHL Draft by the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2006 and took home the biggest prize of all in 2009 after winning the Stanley Cup with the Pittsburgh Penguins. After 6 years with the Pittsburgh Penguins, Jordan signed a 10-year, $60 million contract with the Carolina Hurricanes in 2012, later being named co-captain alongside Justin Faulk. Jordan Staal continues to be an incredible threat and legacy both on and off the ice.

One of the only ways you can make it as far as the Staal brothers is with the help of proper training aids. Even if you have a backyard rink, there is no comparison to having the right gear. One of Jordan’s favorite Hockey Shot Products is the Passer Pro. As he said, “The HS Passer Pro is a fantastic training aid! I was impressed at the high quality and strong puck rebound, it allows me to work on my passes and fire one-timers at home during the off-season. Their training aids are now an essential part of my off-ice training. Join the HS revolution, I did!”

It takes passion, hard work and most importantly training, to achieve your goals of playing in the NHL. The Hockey Shot Product Line Up can get you there, so pick up your gear today and start playing for your game of a lifetime!
