A Conversation with Huberdeau

Jonathan Huberdeau is in town serving as a guest instructor at the Florida Panthers Ultimate Summer Hockey School at the Panthers IceDen in Coral Springs.


Huberdeau chats with Floridapanthers.com about his offseason training regimen, his experience at the World Championship in Belarus, and rooting for the USA during the World Cup.

How have you been spending your offseason so far?

I’ve been home, in Montreal with my family. I’m working out five days a week and playing some golf. It’s been a good offseason so far, just getting ready for next season.

Have you taken any time to relax after the season or after playing for Canada at the World Championships in Belarus?

We had two or three weeks before the World Championship so I kind of took that time off and then I started preparing for the World Championship. After the World Championship I took a week off and now I am training again.

What is a typical day like during the offseason?

I work out like 45 minutes from my house, so I wake up at probably 8:30 a.m., leave around 10 a.m. and get to the gym at 10:45 a.m. I workout from about 11 a.m. -12:30 p.m. After that I just go back home, and it depends on how the day is. If it’s nice outside I’ll probably go and play a round of golf or I’ll play tennis. Just do a little bit of sports or just go home and relax.

Are you training with any NHL players?

I work out with some NHL guys, like [Marco] Scandella. (Minnesota Wild). There are a lot of guys that come in later in the summer.

Did you get a chance to watch the US World Cup opener against Ghana?

Yeah we did actually. Nick and I watched it at my place. It was good. I am kind of cheering for USA even though I’m Canadian. They [Canada] are not playing in the World Cup, so I was cheering for USA. I was happy that they won the first game. I thought Ghana was all over them and they kind of found a way to win.

What was your experience like playing for Canada at the World Championships in Belarus?

It was really good. I didn’t have the best season this year so I think I wanted to finish the season kind of positively, and I think that’s why I decided to go play. To represent your country is always a great experience. It was really fun. I liked it, I liked the city, we had a good group of guys and I did well so that was a plus.

You looked really comfortable on the ice during the tournament. How did you feel about your game in Belarus?

I was happy with my game. That’s what I wanted to do, bring the confidence back and have a strong showing. I was happy with that but unfortunately we lost in the quarterfinals.

What is it like getting out here with the kids at the youth hockey camp?

It’s great. As a kid you always want to look to a guy that is in the NHL. I would have liked that. I didn’t have the chance to do a lot of camps like that when I was younger. I would have liked that to have some NHL guys around me, kind of helping me through the camps. Nick and I are just glad to be there to help the kids and teach them a little about the game.
