Denis Savard recently suprised the Glenview Ice Center and spoke to the Stars Bantam Elite and Mite Elite teams. He spoke to the Bantams about the importance of education and school for hockey players looking to play at the next level.
Savard then gave an informal talk to the Mite 1 team in the locker room after their practice. He spoke about how he got started playing hockey at age six and encouraged all young hockey players to skate as much as possible. Savard said that when he was a child, he skated often at outdoor rinks and attributed much of his success to the skills he developed there while playing pickup hockey with friends and neighbors.
