I started to play hockey a few years ago (20 y.o) and wanted to hear everyones opinion on whether speed off the ice translates to speed on the ice. The reason why I ask is because I was a sprinter in HS, but I find I definitely lose races to guys on ice I don't think would beat me on ground. I'd say I feel fairly comfortable on ice. Is it one of those "you either have it or you don't" things? Or does it come with practice?
