Mark Scheifele Intends To Be The Best He Can

from Emily Kaplan of ESPN,

"Tom Brady is the best in the world and only seems to be getting better in age," Scheifele said. "Why wouldn't I want to learn from him?"

Scheifele went as far as hiring a private chef last season in Winnipeg. Before they began their business relationship, Scheifele took his chef on an excursion. First, they visited Scheifele's go-to restaurant in Toronto, Impact Kitchen, for a deeper understanding of the organic menu. The second leg of the trip was to Boston, where they had an eight-hour session with Brady's former chef Allen Campbell to discuss food theory, write up a meal plan and learn exactly how the quarterback eats.

"It was amazing," Scheifele said.

As he prepares for his sixth NHL season, everything in Scheifele's training is intentional, from the app that monitors his sleep to the pineapple juice he keeps around his house -- made from the pulverized core, which holds most of the fruit's nutrients -- to the book he's reading: "Talent is Overrated."
