Is Minor Hockey Broken? Twitter talk show at 8 PM Eastern tonight ( March 14th)

Along with the founders of TOP Sports, we'll be hosting a Twitter talk show ( Twitter Spaces) on the topic of Youth Hockey.

With everything going on, it's no surprise we've seen varying opinions pop up across the media landscape. But what do you think? Is hockey broken for our young players? Does it need fixing? If so, how?

Join the 45-min conversation, on our Twitter Page @hockeytomorrow , as our panelists and audience will go over various elements including programming, diversity, the parents, and many more.

All you need is a Twitter account ( I know it sounds like Elon is paying me to say this, unfortunately it is NOT the case)

We'll also be raffling away a Connor McDavid jersey to 1 lucky listener, so you don't want to miss this out!

Swedish Marsblade keeps growing

Founder Per Mars sketched his Flow Motion Technology on a piece of paper 20 years ago and it's turned into a massive hit ever since. So much so that bonafide NHL stars have hopped on the investment bandwagon to fuel its impressive trajectory.

How does it work? The Marsblade has an ice rocker and holder that are always in contact with the ice which helps result in a more powerful and longer skating stride as well as optimum balance.

The company ran extensive performance tests on both the inline and ice holders compared to more rigid versions and they consistently showed a noticeable increase in all of the key skating aspects.

Courteau resigns as Quebec Junior Major Commissioner

Another day, another scandal in hockey. This time, it's in Quebec and related to the numerous hazing rituals that junior major teams do to rookies, actions considered abusive and violent.

Although Courteau was planning on stepping aside soon enough, the LHJMQ commissioner abruptly resigned to try and contain the bad PR that has been running across the hockey sphere.

This is a good move by Gilles to keep things moving positively.

That’s it for this edition of the Hockey of Tomorrow newsletter. As we continue to highlight the best, most diverse, and most interesting, off-ice hockey stories, we would appreciate any feedback you might have.

Thanks again for reading this edition of Hockey of Tomorrow.

Tom Sychterz, Founder
