In an interview with The Hockey News’ Ryan Kennedy, Dan Girardi discussed his summer workout with Darryl Belfry of Pro Playmakers Hockey…
“I work a lot on shooting skills from the point, using different edges. His teachings are different from a lot of other guys. He really goes in depth with your edgework, your leg bend, all the stuff you don’t really think about when you’re on the ice playing in the game. That’s why when we come here and do it during the summer it comes natural to us when we start playing.”
Girardi had five goals last season. One of which was on the power play.
…love hearing that Girardi is working to make himself a more complete player.
…he could easily continue to improve his defensive and shot blocking skills, but to see him focusing on a weak part of his game to help the team get better should have Rangers fans even more excited to watch this guy do his thing on the blueline again this season.
