I agree with the whole bending the knees thing....i was lucky enough when i first broke into Ice hockey to get a session with Peter Bondra where he took kids 1-1 and helped us with our skating tech....i skate extreamly low to the ice not only are you faster but your alot harder to catch/takedown and your alot stronger on the puck. My dad always tells me that it looks like im about to face plant in the ice because of how low i get. Also just in the last couple of months ive bought a stationary bike and am on it for about 30-45 mins a day on it ive gotten alot faster you'll see a noticalbe diff in a week of doing that!
If you have the money deff get some power skating lessons i had a coach that tought the powerskate stuff teach the team that, and it helped my skating as well. now if i could just get a lil more accurate shot.
GOOD LUCK
