Hockey Sense: Yes You Can Learn It
Submitted By Administration on Thu 01 07, 16
Hockey sense is the most elusive skill to learn and teach. Many people hold the false belief that players either have hockey sense or they don’t. These are the people that will tell you that Wayne Gretzky was just born to be great and he had a natural gift to see the ice like no one else could. I think this is bull.

I have read Wayne Gretzky’s autobiography and I would argue that his hockey sense came from an obsession for every minor detail of the game, it came from spending every free hour he had playing hockey before school and after school on his outdoor rink (during the winter) and with multiple hockey teams. It also came from sitting in front of the t.v and following plays that the pro’s were making and trying to figure out where they were going, what they were doing, and why. Gretzky (and many other players) learned to be great, and so can you!
