"Training with Mat this past summer really helped me improve my confidence as a player. Mat pushed me out of my comfort zone giving me more tools out on the ice to become more of a complete Hockey player.


After training with Mat I felt a lot stronger on my edges. I was able to preform many different moves and fakes with the puck at a much higher pace and gave me a stronger base to get a quality shot off. 


Mat taught me to rethink the way I shoot the puck."
