He was kind enough to write an article for my blog called how to improve hockey speed

He focused on

The three main off-ice components, which are:
  1. Leg Strength
  2. Explosiveness
  3. Agility and foot speed

He also included a bunch of videos, here is one of them

I hope that helps anyone who is looking to improve there speed. You can also check out his S3 formula if you are looking for a complete workout for hockey.

Also, what workouts or exercises have you found that actually worked to improve your speed?
i made up something similar to that about 20 yrs ago when i played jr. but i jumped in a "V"shape
start in the middle. jumpe with both feet to the left, than backwards to the middle, then to the right then backwards to the middle again. do that for a minute . rest . repeat
then i jumped with both feet SIDEWAYS over a milk crate. back and forth for a minute. after that gets easy start doing it with 10 lbs in each hand.
i was (and still am ) one of the faster skaters in my age group.
