Body mechanics in hockey: How to change the direction of run?

On earth (with gravitational force as the most dominant natural force acting up on us), good application of bodyweight will lead to efficient movement. Leaning the body is an efficient tool to change direction in movement and to benefit from gravity instead of fighting it. Doing so will reduce impact on the joints and muscles significantly. Source: Thjeko.
