Petro Reveals Secrets of Being Ready

On his official website, Johan Petro reveals how he stays ready during a shortened season, those little extra's he's tried this year.

First of all, he says, listen to your body. "When your body is screaming, you have to listen and try to fix it because you can't go it alone with a little pain. It will only get worse," he writes. "You have to do a little more of everything. More time in the training room, more ice after practice and games, massages. Anything to treat your body at this point, you need to get it done ... The other thing is the energy level. You have to just try and keep it as high as possible. The one thing I've tried to do differently is rest."

Petro also advises, "Practice helps."
