Dougie Hamilton Continues to Soar!!!

At the NHL All Star break it is a great time to assess, 48 games into the 82 game season.  Boston has rebounded after a bit of a cool spell going 6-1-3 in the last 10 games, firmly in a playoff spot.  Wish I could say that for my Leafs - another story, wish they were using Infinit!  Part of the Bruins success is continued solid play from Dougie Hamilton - having a career year in his 3rd as a pro.  Dougie sits 4th in total points for the Bruins, with 8 goals and 18 assists, already ahead of his totals for all of last year.  He has been logging close to 22 minutes per game, really impressive for a 21 year old.

Dougie and Freddie - Rare to see brothers at the World Juniors
Back in 2012
Dougie received some very high praise on a Boston radio station WEEI 93.7 FM this week when Pierre McGuire was asked:“where do you see his career headed”, PM - " a potential Norris Trophy winner, which is the best defenseman in the league”.  Obviously this is crazy high praise for Dougie, to even be mentioned in the same breath as a Norris Trophy.  Later Pierre talked a little about his summer conditioning, which we know all about, he stated: "He had a huge growth spurt this summer, he trained with his father, who was an Olympic Rower, a phenomenal Olympic athlete for Canada and his dad had him out on the water paddling a lot this summer, you could see his shoulders just expanded and he is shooting the puck so much harder, I think the big reason why is all the rowing he did this summer."  Yes Dougie and his brother Freddie did a lot of off-ice conditioning this past summer, they also made a change to their recovery for all the strength work they were doing.

We suggested that in addition to the Hockey Fuel System that they consider using RESCUE that was created to support heavy strength and conditioning efforts.  Dougie was game, and it soon became a summer staple.  Am I suggesting that Infinit is the reason Dougie continues to grow into premier defenseman in the league, no of course not.  What I am saying is that Infinit has allowed Dougie to make the most of his efforts on and off the ice.

We are very proud to be fuelling the Hamilton brothers!
