As a part of their second China tour, the 4.5-day Bruins’ clinic in Beijingwill include dry-land workouts where Bruins' players and staff will lead youth hockey players through hockey-specific exercises and agility training aimed at improving their on-ice performance. In addition to on and off ice training, Krug, Pastrnak and Rask will lead educational video sessions and break down various hockey strategies and techniques to Chinese players and coaches. After this project, the Bruins will move to Shanghai to open a similar clinic.
