While Connor McDavid may be synonymous with skating speed, Michael Grabner can also fly down the ice.
The 30-year-old winger for the Arizona Coyotes was voted the second-fastest skater in the NHL in a poll of his peers last season, second only to McDavid.
Grabner, who grew up in Austria, credits off-ice training with helping him develop his breakneck speed.
"In Austria, we don't really skate in the beginning of summer—there's no ice there," Grabner told Men's Journal. "So I'm always in the gym doing a lot of work instead. That's where my lower-body power comes in. You need it to stay explosive, stay fast."
Obviously, his routine is working.
Grabner's speed has helped him net 158 NHL career goals to date.
