Reviews

"I think it's really, really impressive what he's been able to do. It's been a lot of fun to work with him and I'm really thankful he's had a great influence on me in my career." —John Tavares, Toronto Maple Leafs captain 

"As smart as he is, I think he's always trying to learn, too. I think he's always trying to add things to his philosophy and how he teaches things. I think there's no better way to do that than when you're working with some of the best players in the world." —Auston Matthews, Toronto Maple Leafs alternate captain 

"To get a separation from being a good to a very good player or from being a very good player to an elite player, some nights the differences aren't very big. He can help you utilize your skills to the best of your ability. He has a unique talent for that." —Lars Eller, Washington Capitals center 

"Sometimes we don't even have to speak. We just look at each other and we know what we're trying to do. That's over 10 years working together and getting to know someone really well. I really respect him." —Hayley Wickenheiser, five-time Team Canada Olympic medalist
