NJ's Ultimate Hockey Performance Experience


Together, we have over 45 years of combined NHL experience as a player and head strength and conditioning coach. Now, as xHockey Performance, we are offering unprecedented access to the ultimate NHL training experience and a cutting-edge assemblage of training techniques and diagnostics not found anywhere else in the country. From our perspective, we found the sport to be missing a few things… So, we expose what’s necessary to succeed and expand what’s possible to achieve—at any level of competitive hockey.

Unlike the myriad of “off-ice” and “dry-land” programs flooding the marketplace, our hockey performance training is based on a knowledgeable commitment to long-term progression strategy and winning on the highest stage. While everyone acknowledges having limited ice time, few actually understand how that hampers skill development. Instead of working on technique, players are focused on game situations. As a result, self-correction and mediocre habits can only limit the skills needed to excel. Addressing that critical limitation, our proprietary hockey skill curriculum was created by retired NJ Devils Captain, Bryce Salvador.

In addition, hockey-specific strength and conditioning is spearheaded by the winningest Strength Coach in NHL history, Mike Vasalani. Having been a part of three Stanley Cups, he knows better than anyone in the sport how crucial the underlying physical foundation is to being able to truly play the game. Together, we combine the physical, the technical, the mental and the technological in a way that helps prevent injury and actually elevates performance. Whether you’ve already made the pros or you’re a youth hockey player dreaming of getting there, xHockey Performance will assist in reaching your goals.

Our Partners

xHockeyProducts was founded by professional athletes who know what it takes to reach the highest levels of sport. We are passionate about the great game of hockey and strive to create awareness to grow it from a grass-roots level. As current and former players, we do not underestimate our role as ambassadors. Through interactive experiences our goals are for fans of the game to have fun and for players to be challenged; and through training products we genuinely wish to help athletes attain their full potential.

Athletic Edge operates around a philosophy and a practice: that improvement within the sport of hockey—no matter the level—will be attained when science and fitness are brought together with intelligence, purpose and strategy.

This involves coordinated physical/technological analyses as a starting point, multi-dimensional program design as a road map, and detail-oriented assessments along the way.
