Your little guy (or girl!) may very well be a future NHL superstar. They may tape their stick exactly like Sydney
Crosby. They may copy the very same warm-up moves as Martin Brodeur. They may even wear their hair like Alexander Ovechkin. Mimicking today’s hockey heroes in these ways certainly should not be discouraged… well maybe the hair one. However, it is NOT appropriate for kids to imitate NHLers in all ways. A prime
example of this is nutrition.
