Thanks in advance.
Well, he puts on a pair of men's hockey skates. Black. Don't know the size. Then he hops onto the ice and starts moving his legs...
Okay. Sorry. Not what you asked.
Pokka may not be the greatest skater, at least at the moment, but he is far from abysmal either. But whatever shortcomings he may have in it, one doesn't really notice them IMO. His positioning in the own end is solid and he has clearly better-than-average vision, being able to give some pretty creative passes. Using these abilities, he definitely doesn't have to cycle around the rink that much.
Overall, a good prospect and a lock to make this team.
