Get outside.

“I played so much road hockey and did so much stickhandling when I was younger…I think, honestly, that’s where you learn those moves,” Foligno said, when asked about his highlight-tape goal against Montreal Saturday.

“I think (Alex Kovalev) would probably say the same thing. That’s where he probably developed his skills, off the ice. Just with a ball. A tennis ball is so hard to control. I did that my whole life growing up. I was outside every day, even in the winter, when it was nice out. That’s pretty much where I have to say I learned all those things and then you bring it on to the ice and it comes together. I was lucky to have that.”
