When you skate, do you bend your knees and bend at the waist? I was self taught. I did receive that advice from one of the best NHL skaters, Eddie Shore, when I was twelve years old. I never took a skating lesson. Even though I was very small, 5'7" and 120 pounds, I worked the Memorial Cup and pro hockey, as a Linesman, when I was nineteen. I had a tryout with the NHL, original six, when I was twenty-one, all because of my skating speed. You not only get good speed, you also have better balance.
