in addition to that, if he gets out on the ice 2 times a week, and messes around stickhandling/shooting in the garage/basement a couple of times, he will be well ahead of most kids.
Isn't 12 years old a little young to be lifting weights? I was taught that 14 is probably the youngest you should get a kid lifting.... maybe 13 if he seems to be maturing at an early age. Of course, that doesn't mean the kid can't do bodyweight exercises or callisthenics.
