ON - ICE INSTRUCTORS
Corey was drafted into the NHL by the Montreal Canadiens and played 9 seasons between the AHL and NHL. He won AHL MVP and Leading Scoring awards before playing 6 seasons in Europe, winning two AHL Calder Cup Championships, a German DEL Championship and was an AHL All-Star six times.
Since recently retiring from playing professional hockey, Corey knew he wanted to continue being on the ice. He is a Certified Hockey Canada High Performance 1 Hockey Coach and a Certified Hockey Canada Skills Coach.
Corey focuses on the fundamentals and good habits, which allows players to recognize where these skills are used throughout the ice surface trying to gain an advantage over the competition. He believes in having players in game-like situations and confined spaces, to learn to play against pressure, learning when to make quick plays and when to be patient.
Brandon is the Founder of SHIELD.
His passion is bringing the most
skilled, experienced, and intuitive specialists together to create an effective team for creating the complete hockey player. Brandon has developed systems that allow the young hockey player to translate seamlessly from the gym to the ice, resulting in a quick learning curve and stellar improvement.
Brandon has pioneered the SHIELD hockey program, which has supported Stanley Cup champions and Team Canada National Players.
Having the knowledge and experience of a strength and conditioning coach and former NCAA & pro hockey player bridges the gap of understanding what the hockey player truly needs to create change on and off the ice.
The SHIELD team educates its athletes focusing on four pillars: Mindset, Movement, Nutrition, & Recovery. Learning the four pillars will teach the athlete how to become efficient in both life and sport, encouraging them to be better human beings.
“Human Performance Made Better”
Lauren Malott is a high performance skating consultant, corrective movement practitioner and osteopath.
Her work is dedicated to optimizing mechanics to improve skating efficiency, reduce injury risk, and aid in return to sport at the professional and elite minor levels.
Lauren draws on her understanding of functional anatomy and kinetics, experience as a Team Canada athlete at the Senior World level, and work experience with NHL teams and top industry leaders to best support players.
Lauren is thrilled to work with SHIELD, and play a key role in developing foundations in skating within the program!
Scott came up through the Burlington Organization, having played with the Burlington Eagles and Cougars. After playing at Vermount in the NCAA, Scott played semi-pro in the AHL, European Lague, and attended the training camps for both the Toronto Maple Leafs and Boston Bruins.
As an Offensive Skills Coach, Scott focuses on generating offense and goal scoring. Attacking with speed, keeping your feet moving with your head up, and getting to the dangerous areas of the offensive zone are important skills that can become habits.
Scott zeros in on what goaltenders are thinking depending on where the shooter is on the ice, and teaches athletes how to react accordingly to create an offensive advantage.
Who doesn’t love to score goals!?!
