In episode #242 of the Glass and Out Podcast, we're joined by Mark Poolman, the Head Athletic Trainer, and Strength and Conditioning Coach of the University of North Dakota men’s hockey team. 

Poolman's reputation precedes him and it’s no secret that UND is a pipeline of NHL talent. The alumni list includes the likes of Jonathan Toews, Zach Parise, TJ Oshie, Jake Sanderson, Ed Belfour and Brock Boeser, just to name a few. To put it in perspective: last season alone, 23 former UND players suited up in the NHL. 

Listen as he shares off-ice training tips for youth players, why sleep is critical to player performance, and how to deal with stress as a coach.
