Ninety percent of hockey is mental and the other half is physical.


A good hockey player plays where the puck is. A great hockey player plays where the puck is going to be.


I knew at a young age, whether I was playing baseball or hockey or lacrosse, that my teammates were counting on me, whether it be to strike the last batter out in a baseball game or score a big goal in a hockey game.


Hockey is a unique sport in the sense that you need each and every guy helping each other and pulling in the same direction to be successful.


I wasn't naturally gifted in terms of size and speed; everything I did in hockey I worked for, and that's the way I'll be as a coach.


Procrastination is one of the most common and deadliest of diseases and its toll on success and happiness is heavy.
