Alex Steeves dug into the playbook of New England Patriots legendary quarterback Tom Brady this past offseason.
A strict diet and a rigorous workout schedule that included on- and off-ice activities helped pave the way for a terrific third and final season of junior hockey with the Dubuque Fighting Saints.
"This summer I went on the Tom Brady diet," said Steeves. "My goal was to get a little bit leaner and faster, but to increase my muscle at the same time."
"I worked out at Edinger’s Edge (in Hooksett, N.H.) with Clint Edinger. He’s huge for hockey development and strength. He’s really good at what he does. I skated with him and my brothers," said Steeves, a Bedford, N.H., resident.
