Townshend is a former Skating and Skills Coach for the NHL’s Toronto Maple Leafs (one of only 3 in the NHL). His main responsibility is to prepare all Maple Leafs players and prospects for the skills required for the “new” NHL, with the primary focus being skating skills. Every player in the Maple Leafs organization is trained under Townshend’s watchful eye.

Graeme is currently the only skating and skills coach in the world who has played, coached and taught at every level of hockey there is. From youth hockey to the Canadian Junior Hockey ranks to NCAA Div. 1 College to Europe to the NHL, Mr. Townshend has the experience to know what truly works and what does not work. “One of my most frustrating experiences was being taught in college by a guy with a figure skating background who had no idea of the challenges I was facing on the ice. I’ve seen some things being taught (that really do not work) by other nationally known instructors who have absolutely no practical playing experience.” says Mr. Townshend.

Townshend was recently inducted into the Canadian Black Hockey Hall of Fame in August of 2006, along with the likes of Anson Carter and Herb Carnegie and Willie O’Ree.
