In Developing Story, a regular feature on collegehockeyinc.com, we highlight current college hockey players who have developed their skills during their careers – either on the ice or off – and in turn made a bigger impact on their team's success.
Ice time is valuable, as anyone who has tried to rent 50 minutes at their local rink can attest. It's also a necessity for anyone hoping to improve their game and advance to the next level.
That's where Brown University's Meehan Auditorium has proven invaluable for senior forward Jack Maclellan.
In addition to extensive practice time, Maclellan has taken advantage of extra ice time, in particular developing his skating to help him become an elite player in ECAC Hockey and a top NHL prospect.
"At Brown we get a lot of access to ice," the Bears' captain said. "As much as we practice as a team, the ice is available other times as well, and I took advantage of that from day one. Whether it's in the morning between classes or on days off, you can get out there and work on individual skills."
