Christian Sarlo knew what he had to work on if he was going to earn a college commitment. He kept hearing it over and over. His skating needed to improve in order to play college hockey.
"My skating comes up a lot in discussion with coaches. My skating needs to improve and I need to have quicker feet. It’s what I’ve realized will help push me to the next level," said Sarlo, who works with Long Island skating coach Jackie Munzel.
While his skating is still a work in progress, it has made strides to the point that he finally received an offer from a Division 1 program following the USA Hockey Select 17 Player Development Camp in Amherst, N.Y.
