I grew up watching my Dad play hockey, he was a stay at home defenceman. Of course, I followed in his footsteps. Dad played charity games in our hometown, he coached local teams and tolerated my ankle slashes as he taught me how to play hockey.
Over the years my Dad became the primary driver to my hockey games, practices and tournaments across Ontario. Growing up in the snow belt of Ontario, the driving conditions were not optimal, but with my Dad behind the wheel I didn’t worry about the deteriorating weather conditions.
Just like my Dad, Bridgestone keep precious cargo safe during icy conditions. Bridgestone Blizzak Winter and Snow Tires bite into snow and ice giving you increased confidence in winter’s worst conditions. On the road to the rink or wherever their winter adventures may take them, Blizzak offers Canadian drivers and their precious cargo:
- Confident stopping power on snow and ice
- Reliable handling on snow and slush
- Impressive grip and control in winter driving conditions
- Bridgestone’s Winter Tire Warranty
My Dad explained that a good defenceman is plays both offensively & defensively. He also taught me that playing defence had many duties including:
- reading the play
- keeping my feet moving
- play inside the dots
- keep my stick on the ice, stick on the puck & body to body
- communicate with my defensive team
Dad would remind me that if I did my job correctly, then the goalie could then do their job more effectively and make great stops between the pipes. Out on the road, out on the rink, Bridgestone believes in the power of great stops.
