“Coach Eisler has had an enormous impact on my development as a hockey player as well as a person. The way that he explains the game and breaks down everything allows you to learn so much and use what he teaches in many scenarios. He taught me to be aware of my weaknesses so that I could build upon them, which lead me to have a more well-rounded game.  Off the ice, he taught me to be a disciplined and responsible individual. I wouldn’t be where I am in hockey or in life without Coach Eisler’s guidance.”

Derek Eisler has had a tremendous impact on not only my hockey career but as well as my life.  The biggest thing that I learned from coach was how to grow up not only as a hockey player but as a man.  He taught our whole team valuable lessons that I don’t think I could find from any other coach.  His knowledge and understanding of the game really help me understand what I would have to do in order to reach my goal of playing hockey at the collegiate level.
