Founder David Trombley
David’s evolution into a highly-skilled hockey specialist began in typically Canadian fashion: on the backyard rink. He began skating at age 2 and played his minor hockey with the AAA Toronto Young Nationals. After high school, he attended Clarkson University in upstate New York on a full hockey scholarship. Upon graduation, David was the Quebec Nordiques’ 1st pick, second overall, in the 1991 NHL Supplemental Draft. A neck injury ended his professional career after two months.
But David was not about to give up hockey. His strong passion for the sport remained. So too did an eagerness to share his knowledge and provide other players with the tools to realize their dreams. In 1993, David founded Hockey Extreme with a single goal: to provide the best hockey instruction available. It’s a goal that continues to drive him more than 20 years later.
David is recognized for his ability to analyze and observe player strengths and weaknesses, providing techniques to correct all aspects of a player’s game. Over two decades, David has instructed a wide array of students – from house league to adult beginners, college players to NHLers.
David’s commitment to teaching passionate hockey players and helping to make them awesome hockey players is surpassed only by his devotion to family. He’s a dedicated father to daughter Darcy and a loving husband to his wife, Christy Trombley.
