Love this. Great article, Mike. Don't know if "Hitch" has a Journal subscription, but so glad he's found the community. He might be glad to hear that it includes some die-hard puckheads, too... (Go Bruins. Sorry, Hitch.)

I play hockey at least twice a week. I do crossfit at least 4 days a week and I've noticed my abilities in Hockey have increased due to my crossfit training. I get less tired during my shifts and I've become a much more balanced and powerful skater. The other day I chased down this guy on a break away with what seemed like little effort. I won't complain next time we do squats!
