Hudson Bay Rules

Oct 25 Tip: Hudson Bay Rules

  • Hudson Bay Rules = Where there are no rules (hockey)
  • This is what I heard throughout my pro career
  • Especially in OT, play offs, when we were down

Hudson Bay Rules

  • In hockey, it is an informal word to describe a style of play where there are no penalties called. (Referee puts his whistle away…whatever)
  • Picture above : Kevin McClelland epitomizes Hudson Bay Rules for me
  • He was Gretzky’s bodyguard, won 4 Stanley Cup rings, an enforcer
  • I played with him in the minors for Toronto Maple Leafs AHL Team
  • When he said or our coach said Hudson Bay Rules…that means war in front of the net
  • That mindset stuck with me
  • We teach this at THE BATTLE CAMP
  • How to play in the dirty area, in front of the net
  • That is where you are going to get your points
  • As a D I would look for the forwards sticks, who was low ready and open on their forehand of their backhand, who was on the move looking at me telling me he was ready
  • On every team I played for either a coach or with a teammate or both who told me to take some speed off my bomb from the point so that it was not so wild for tipping in
  • I worked with forwards every day after practice firing bombs at them from the blueline every which way but loose, on tip ins
  • I talk to my daughter about Hudson Bay Rules in front of the field hockey net
  • Need to be a honey badger, low, strong, sliding hands, ready for battle, ready for the shot, ready for the deflection, eyes ready, feet moving, call out your D, use your voice, use your body…Hudson Bay Rules
  • Only thing I do not recommend is what happened back in the day….some guys sharpened the but end of stick and toe of blade for poking. Cannot make this up. Not mentioning any names but they are big names.

Love this shot…Hudson Bay Rules.

There were many times that friends on the team would not talk to me or each other because we would go so hard on each other in practice…

This is Marc Concannon. One of the best skill coaches in The Nation. At AAA BU Development Camp.

Do not get into a rut during the season. Take a break, go to a skills coach, take a private. Listen to a new voice periodically during the season. Step away from the team and train on your own.

We teach specific breakouts and systems at Pro Ambitions. Ones you can take back to your team.

Play for us in Prague. We are building our teams. Looking for AAA Girls and Boys birth years 2005-2011. Taking two all girls teams and welcome girls to play on the boys teams if a good fit.

It is so damn hard. But only the hard things in life are the best things.

Our Bruins President Cam Neely has grown youth hockey with Pro Ambitions and The Boston Bruins at a grassroots level for over a decade. Cam was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2005.

I made a list of my responsibilities as a Defenseman. I read my list before every game as part of my pre game ritual. Make a List.

We have quite a team again this season.

Bruins camps are included in the SALE.

AGAIN this fall during the SALE, resort boarding is the fastest selling camp along with AAA BU. But we have six weeks at BU. Do not wait to sign up for Resort Boarding. Offering Resort Boarding for the NWHL Girls Camps too next summer. That is new!

Curt talks to campers at AAA BU. How he played through the bloody sock. Hudson Bay Rules…
