Default Home training to be aggressive

My 8th grade son was just invited to skate with the High School team last night. He is a good player in a AA travel league (Bantum).
After practice, the coach told my wife and I that he needs to be more aggressive to make the team.
In the later part of June there is a camp that the coach chooses from for tryouts (about 7 weeks from now).
So my son has 7 weeks to train to be a more aggressive player.
Currently he does lift weights but not on any type of schedule. Hes not on any type of diet either.
We want to use this time as a challenge. I think that 7 weeks is a fair amount of time.
I am looking for some guidance or suggestions from anyone creditable to this specific training.
What are some exercises that can be performed (off ice and on) to help become a more aggressive player?
Thank you.

speak with a trainer for starters...

explain the situation to them and make sure that they understand you want to get your son on the right path for physical fitness and cardio for hockey.

7 week's is enough time to get him going in the right direction. But being more aggresive is 1) mental toughness 2) as his physical strength increases so will his mental toughness/aggresiveness.

I agree with the mental toughness, you'd only need to train him to be physically aggresive. Maybe he just isn't an aggressive-type hockey player ala Joe Sakic, Steve Yzerman.

He is probally a non agreesive lady bying player, but if u wanna get him agreesive just tell him to, the only way training can help him is make him bigger and stronger that way he has no fears of being aggresive, just tell him to be more agreesive and go to the gym regularyly.

I don't really understand how or why some of you are relating physical size to agressiveness. As a coach, if I am telling a player I want he or she to play more agressively, it means I want them to pick up the intensity level, put in that second effort, fight harder for the puck, be stronger in the corners, fight harder through checks and check harder in the defensive end. Its particularly important for a player who is trying to make a team of players older than him. Take Sidney Crosbey for example playing with players older than him (both in the Q and world juniors). He is a very aggressive player.

It will be important for him to be prepared to play with players who are physically bigger, but as I've said, being big and strong doesn't make you aggressive. I would also be wary of doing extensive weight programs at very young ages.

My Interpretation of aggressive is maybe different than some of the rest of you, if so thats just a difference of opinion I guess. Theo Fleury, Doug Gilmour are just two examples of players who are small but agressive. You don't need to be built like a power forward.
