How you can build a COMPLETE hockey player: (guys i need 20 players)

1. It doesn’t matter how athletic a hockey player is, if they aren’t skilled,
you won’t be very good.

2. It doesn’t matter how athletic or skilled a hockey player is, if you have
a low hockey IQ, you won’t be good.

3. It doesn’t matter how athletic, skilled or smart a player is, if you have
NO HEART, you will not be good for this hockey team.

We are building a TEAM! Ask yourself how many bricks will you add today??

Make sure you train hard today, get better today, be a great teammate
today. Have fun today!
