IT'S A FANTASTIC PROGRAM." – MEGHAN DUGGAN, U.S. Olympian, four- time IIHF women's world champion, 2011 Patty Kazmaier Award recipient "The American Development Model has made a huge impact on our young athletes, and by staying committed to the ADM, we'll continue giving them the overall skill development they need." – PHIL HOUSLEY, Hockey Hall of Famer, Nashville Predators assistant coach, 2013 gold medal-winning U.S. National Junior Team head coach, U.S. Olympian "The ADM is having an extremely positive effect on youth hockey, from skill development to participation numbers." – GARY BETTMAN, Commissioner of the NHL "THE ADM IS ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC. THE PRINCIPLES BEHIND THE PROGRAM ARE DEAD-ON." – BRIAN BURKE, Calgary Flames president of hockey operations, silver medal-winning general manager of 2010 U.S. Olympic Men's Team "I like that the ADM encourages kids to play other sports, too. Hockey is a great sport, but playing other sports definitely helps you become a better hockey player." – ZACH PARISE, U.S. Olympian, two-time Team USA gold medalist
