The other skills are worked on just as religiously and consistently by the top players on their own. (Just one example is Galchenyuk. The ice time he practiced weekly on his own when he was with the Chicago Young Americans, was more ice than he got with his U16 team at CYA. That trend continued in Sarnia and Iím sure the trend was same before he came to CYA.) These are stories that parents need to know
Lots of good points in your post.

In regards to your statements about Galchenyuk, I know a goalie from CYA who used to skate with Galchenyuk and just a couple other players on a full ice sheet for hours on end during the summer. Galchenyuk would get upset when the goalie would have to go home after playing for 3+ hours.
