Did you see Minnesota Hockey’s most recent online article about “Must Have Game Skills for Forwards”? Mark Loahr, head coach for Totino-Grace’s boys’ high school hockey team, who is one of only 12 coaches with more than 500 wins in Minnesota high school hockey history says this. “We do a lot of 1-on-1 battles along the wall” “And we do it in open ice too – learning to control the puck in a small area in open ice. “We try to do one of those drills at least every other day. We do a lot of small area stuff, especially as the season goes on.”
