Junior Player Advice – Where to get it?

Recently TJHN has received many emails and phone calls regarding advice to players looking to play NCAA hockey after junior, and Midget players looking to play Junior Hockey. Several emails have included links to message boards from several different regions throughout the Unites States and Canada.

Player advice is not something that should be given or received lightly. Every player is unique, every situation is unique, and every solution is therefore going to be unique to those specific circumstances. We understand many players and parents need and want advice, there are many questions to be answered. The only sure answer to many of these questions is; if your asking questions about your Childs playing future, dont ask questions on a message board, get a family adviser.

There are right handed players and left handed players. There are forwards, defensemen and goaltenders. Bauer or CCM? A Sakic curve or a Vanek? There are as many questions for the individual player as there are answers. There is no such thing as a "one size fits all" answer when looking at paths an individual player may travel upon in their playing career.

Unless you are one of the top players in your age group and youre having doors open in front of you, you will have to create opportunity and find open doors that are not always known to be open.

Message boards and talking to people while in the rink can provide as much good information as bad information. It is good to hear both sides in order to educate yourself on the various thought process’s of the people you speak to. Even after getting an adviser it is good to keep your ears open simply because people love to talk and may give away information that could be useful in the future.

The journey to Junior, the NCAA or Pro hockey is a long and winding road for most players. The Patrick Kane’s, and Sydney Crosby’s of the world are the rare player that has doors opened for them, yet they both have agents advising them on their careers. If you aspire to reach new levels of play, it makes sense to work with a person who has your best interest in mind.

The bottom line is simple, when building a house you dont go to a person who builds bird houses. The internet is a great source of general information, but to assume it can help you reach your goals is an incorrect assumption. There is still no substitute for the handshake, the relationship, and the interpersonal communication skills required to open doors for players who need some help reaching their goals, you cant get that in any on line forum.
