Video- This Youngster From Japan Has Some Hockey Moves

via Pavel Barber YouTube channel,

I've been making videos of Iguchi Aito for over a year now.

Iguchi is from Saitama Japan, and his work off the ice helps him be that much better than everyone else. It's always exciting talking to him about ways we can improve his game - he is excelling at an alarmingly fast rate. Very proud of his progress.

Looks like the kid has been watching some NHL hockey, I see some Datsyuk, Ovechkin and others in his moves.

That is some really impressive skill for 11 years old. I couldn’t tell from the videos, but do we know where he is playing? Is this in Japan, or is he just from Japan and playing in North America? Either way, he definitely needs some tougher competition.

I thought this was going to be a non-stop goal real given the first few, but I think his passing and awareness of where his teammates are is possibly more impressive.

This just proves that no matter how good you are at something there’s an Asian out there who can do it better.
