Competitive Edge Leadership
John Madden – Co-owner / NHL Performance and Tactics Consultant
John’s greatest highlights are winning three Stanley Cup Championships (with the New Jersey Devils in 2000 and 2003 and the Chicago Blackhawks in 2010), winning the NCAA Championship with Michigan in 1996 and setting the NCAA career and single season shorthanded goal records that year with 23 and 10 respectively.
Playing defensive forward requires some of the greatest intelligence and competitiveness demanded of a hockey player. As a defensive forward, you have to ensure you are in the right position and in full battle mindset constantly, no matter where the puck is on the full 200 feet sheet of ice.
John brings that same intelligence and his enormous experience to Competitive Edge in a number of ways. Most importantly, by offering his insight into all of our training protocols as we continually review and refine them to the greatest benefit of all of our clients. It’s the perfect compliment to Scott’s coaching and communication expertise and Andy’s inventive mind.
Over the years John has been a reliable assistant coach on several NHL teams (Check out his current gig with the San Jose Sharks).
