"Great work so far. Sue and I are baffled how he can tune us out for 15 years and absorb and pay attention to every word this week. Charlie comes home and talks only about the classroom. Nothing about the ice unless asked. I would have predicted the exact opposite so that is a huge thing itself. Well done."
C J Haddick

"...We didn't have a lot of this material back when we played, back in the 70's. I think it would have benefited me tremendously. Because I think as a young kid, you really don't know where you are going - what road you want to go down.  There's a lot of unanswered questions.  Mom and Dad are around most of the time, but sometimes you don't get into those kind of conversations with parents.  So you just gotta make sure that you pick the right road and the information that you've passed onto my hockey team I'm hoping that its gonna help them tremendously.  Because I know I sure got a lot out of it and if I would have known that back then things certainly may have been different.  I think we as adults we know that young athletes or whoever need to have goals set for yourself.  This program is certainly going to send you in the right direction, its going to give you a lot of insight, and its going to answer maybe a lot of questions you haven't answered yourself.  With you going around giving this information out is certainly going to help out a lot of young kids.

Secret phrase motivates Otters' Hostetter
By Victor Fernandes

No one knows what Tyler Hostetter uttered to himself each day.  "It's only for me to know," he said of the words that motivated him during Philadelphia Flyers camp.

But here's a clue: Through those words, the Erie Otters' defenseman said, "I was able to focus more on what I need to -- what I need to do to make the team (and) what I need to do to become a better player."

Now that he has signed a contract with the NHL's Flyers, Hostetter said, he knows those words "came true," he said.
Hostetter truly believes what was written on his goal card, a tool he created with the help of former NHL player Bob Wilkie, Hostetter's former minor hockey coach. Since summer began, those words and other visual aids such as a poster featuring the Flyers' emblem, team name and other symbols reminded Hostetter of his plans for camp.

"It works," Hostetter, 18, said.

Early this summer, Hostetter was an undrafted free agent rehabilitating a surgically repaired shoulder. When he signed a three-year, entry level deal on Monday, he became a part of the Flyers' future.

"It's pretty impressive," Otters defenseman Paul Cianfrini, 20, said. "I'm not sure why he got looked over (in the NHL draft)."

While Hostetter recovered in the offseason, he physically trained as much as possible. He worked out with former Belleville winger Eric Tangradi, an Anaheim Ducks prospect, at a New Jersey training facility. A Panthers coach asked Hostetter what he wanted to improve. "My mental perspective of the game," he responded. So he began working with Wilkie, whom Hostetter calls his mental coach. They worked together throughout Flyers camp. Wilkie spent time preparing Hostetter for the Flyers' rookie game and Saturday's preseason game with the Adirondack Phantoms, the Flyers' AHL affiliate. The game slowed down for Hostetter, even at the fast-paced NHL level. Instead of having thoughts race through his mind on the ice, Hostetter meticulously made decisions and then reacted.

"I had my head focused on the game and nothing else," he said.

Only a telephone call from his agent, Ian Pulver of Toronto-based Pulver Sports, altered his focus.

"They want to offer you a contract," Pulver told Hostetter on Thursday, referring to the Flyers. "Are you (kidding) me?" Hostetter asked. "I didn't know if it was true or not. But it was true."

Hostetter still felt excited before Otters practice at Tullio Arena on Tuesday, but he recalled how he has changed mentally the past few months. "It just makes me really happy about it," he said.  Now he focuses on helping the Otters succeed.

He has reached his goal, but his approach doesn't change.  "It really helped my game out a lot," he said. "You just have to set your mind to it. You just have to be focused and determined to do exactly what you set your mind to."
