LEARN WHAT IT TAKES TO GET TO THE PROS, FROM THE PROS
Former Montréal Canadiens
Joey is young and experienced, so he’s in touch with the way the game is going and what skills are needed to succeed at the highest level. Combined with his keen eye for detail, he’s able to translate these into tangible drills that pushed my physical skill and hockey IQ to new limits.

Joey and I grew up and played summer hockey together for many years. I also was fortunate enough to play with him at the NHL level and saw his skill and smarts first hand. He was so smooth on the ice and always under control. With his smarts and puck handling he would slow or speed up the game, forcing opponents to adjust. Getting to work with him has been very beneficial for me. He finds new ways to work on puck control, speed, shooting and overall awareness that directly translates to the game. What separates Joey is his creativity and knowledge of the game. His drills are challenging and fun. I know I will continue to work with him to develop my game.

My skates with Joey this summer were awesome. It was unique in that the skill work was not isolated movements: handles, edge work and dynamic/deceptive skating were tested in each rep. Joey’s drills really sharped my on ice athleticism. I feel I am moving better and able to react and attack in games much quicker and more dynamic than before. His resume speaks for itself. He has played in the four best leagues in the world, and I think his time in Finland and Sweden allowed him to learn new innovative ways to develop offensive skill while giving him a different perspective on hockey.
I first met Joey in a summer skate where I first noticed how skilled he was. Then when I played again him in the OHL you saw how good his hands were and how smart he was on the ice. When I got the opportunity to work with him on skills with skating techniques I couldn't pass it up. His knowledge for the game and his game situation drills have given me more confidence with the puck in tricky situations. He gets you out of your comfort zone to expand your skillset.

Hish’s drills translate seamlessly into in game situations. He has helped me develop my personal game to relate more to the way the game is played today with an emphasis on efficient movement and skill.
With Joey’s experience at the highest levels of the game, he demonstrates the skills and work ethic it takes to play at an elite level. Through my training with Joey, I have been able to make significant improvements to my edges, stick handling, coordination and shooting. I would highly recommend Joey to anyone trying to take their game to the next level.

Coming to Joey’s skates, being a defenceman, I didn’t know what to expect. The skills stuff I see on social media doesn’t relate to me and the way I need to play to have success, but with Joey I could tell he was different right away. His drills were all about edges, quick puck movement, hands and being able to transition north-south and east-west. I will be back next summer!

The skills sessions with Joey are high pace and push you out of your comfort zone. They incorporate your feet, hands and edges all in one, and are very beneficial to developing your game.
The skills I worked on with Joey this summer helped my game tremendously. It allowed me to learn the skills that are needed to bring my game to the next level. I personally benefited from all the shooting, passing, stick handling and quick edges we did, and it helped me to show up at training camp in the best ‘on ice’ shape of my life. I would recommend Joey to anybody who is looking to improve their game. I can’t wait to work with him next summer.
Joey runs a very professional skills development skate. He does a fantastic job of incorporating game-like scenarios into his drills that will directly translate to improved game performance. I was very impressed with his attention to detail and overall technical knowledge of the game. If you are serious about developing your skills, I would highly recommend hiring Joey.

Hish really helps me get out of my comfort zone and work on things that I can apply to all areas of the ice. The drills are high tempo and he pushes me to be the best I can be.
After the first couple sessions with Hish I felt immediate improvements, especially with my stickhandling and shooting. Hish has new drills every skate and incorporates all aspects of the game. He is young and relates well with all players, he knows the game and the way that it is moving with so much skill today. I would recommend Skills Corp to any player trying to improve their game and make it to the next level.
