Connor McDavid and Jack Eichel Skating Stride Analyzed

Robby Glantz is one of the most respected skating instructors in hockey today. He’s been teaching for over 20 years, has released numerous instructional videos, and works with a number of pro players and teams. He currently has a segment running on the NHL network called Stride for Stride where he breaks down an exciting sequence of events and highlights the mechanics of the skating stride.

Analyzing Eichel and McDavid Skating Stride

What you’ll notice in these segments is a lot of crossover speed, and not a lot of skating in a straight line. As hockey players get bigger, and more skilled they take away a lot of space, so players need to develop great lateral movement and speed. For more from Glantz visit

    Hi Robby, do you still develop/mentor young hockey players? My son Jackson MacMaster (only 10yrs old) is an excellent young hockey player. His obvious strengths are his skating, efforts, attitude, determination, skill & willingness to learn & challenge his own abilities. I have been his head coach since the begining, always focusing on his skating, edge control, stride, power & balance. But I really want to place him with the right mentoring coach that will bring him up & through to the highests ranks. Jackson is very smart, mature, respectful, polite & humble young man with nothing but potential. Anxiously awaiting to pursue & maximize his full hockey potential.
    Please let me know if there is anyway that Jackson could further develop his skill & abilities under your full tutilage.
    Sincerely Cory MacMaster
