Dusan Kralik is the Power Skating Coach of NHL stars like PK Subban of the Nashville Predators and John Tavares of the NY Islanders. I went to meet up with him in Toronto during the spring to have him test our ice holder to hear his thoughts on them. Check it out!

They don’t realize that they can take huge steps forward and really improve their skating technique by taking a step back and work on […]
