In his first NHL season, Juraj Slafkovsky wasn’t perfect. Of course, no one was asking him to be perfect by 2022, let’s face it.
After all, we’ve been saying it all year, but it’s impossible to gain NHL experience without playing in the league… and that’s what the young man did for 39 games.
Juraj Slafkovsky is currently training in Říčany in the Czech Republic with strength and conditioning coach Michal Bretenar who specializes in “changing the breathing rhythm and removing ineffective breathing stereotypes” using integrated physiological training (IFT). pic.twitter.com/BsSjsMGOzD

It’s clear that a young player like him needs to improve in this area. I didn’t notice any problems in this area last year, but a boost is always a good thing.
But that’s not the only aspect he’s working on.
As you know, Slaf is a talented player, but he doesn’t always make the right decisions when he’s on the ice and in possession of the puck.
For example? When he doesn’t keep his head up with the puck.
That’s also why we’re pleased to see that he uses special glasses that can improve his focus, timing, balance and speed.
The glasses Juraj Slafkovsky is wearing while training in Czechia improves “focus, timing, balance, and quickness,” according to the website.
It’s an interesting approach for the #GoHabsGo prospect, who is aiming for a bounce-back sophomore season

I don’t know if this will yield concrete results in his case. Will we see a revised version of the Slovak on the ice in October? Who knows.
But he’s putting the odds in his favor, at least.
– Contract in Toronto.
– Marc Staal to Philly.

I have never seen this quantity and quality of defensive depth at a Canadiens’ camp. Simply brimming with talent. Mighty impressive.

– Sylvain Favreau had the Olympiques coaching job in his sights, but here he is in Drummondville.
I’ll go to the sources this morning, but I’m told that Benoît Desrosiers, a long-time assistant in the @LHJMQ, would now be the favorite candidate for the @OlympiquesGAT head coaching position. Sylvain Favreau has been cooled by Derick Brassard’s departure.
