lol he scored 47 in 70 games "fat" last season....but my takeaway from that article:
Mack believes some of Matthews’ early injuries in the NHL – which have included back, shoulder and wrist problems in his first four seasons – can be prevented in the future. He leaned hard on Matthews to improve the stability in his hips and waist, calling those improvements “the two largest things we did.” That stronger foundation then allowed them to push him in other areas, including creating “more space in all the joints” where he needed it.
“We just wanted anything he asked of his body to be less of a task,” Mack explained. “The less challenging it can be for him to move through all his motions, the more energy and the more efficient he is with everything else. We wanted to make sure he was elastic.”
