“I want to show that I can keep the player.” This is how Lionel Jeffroy, Head of Specialization, explains GBDH’s recruitment strategy. Thanks to Covid’s elimination of uncertainty, GBDH was able to get four new employees to sign a two-year contract (Raul Bargelli, Martin Petiot, Gautier Morvan, Lucas Hubert). The club was also able to retain players as well as stepping stones and trainers.
Prior to medical examination
Before going on vacation, the club brought these four players and passed some medical tests. “They already had all the required NHL tests,” explains Geoffroy. Finding slots for today’s cardiologists and 16 players is not so easy. I wanted to run these tests right away. It requires a lot of physical investment from them, they didn’t want to let them through in August when they were fully prepared to return from vacation.
For Benoit Guillaume, it is also important to consider that “in the test, what is done is our entire range of work on the physical side.” There is a part about what we program at the level of the dimension of motion. There are indications depending on what was seen by the physiotherapist. This makes it possible to bring the recovery program closer to reality. “
This fairly comprehensive medical care was also an important discussion in discussions with players. “We have extensive medical staff and actual physiological and physical monitoring. It’s also important for them as professionals to stay in good shape for as long as possible throughout the season,” Jeffroy said. I am.
Preparations for this season will begin on July 25th at the Sports Palace.
