To celebrate Black Friday, we wanted to give you some good content to digest (along with all the turkey) as well as provide you with some great holiday shopping deals (see below the video).  In this video, we cover breakout options for the strong-side wing.

Main Options:

  • Post-Up
  • Low Pivot
  • Corner Loop
Key Points:
  • Re-accelerate when receiving the pass
  • Learn to catch the pass on both forehand and backhand side
  • Survey your pressure & options before receiving the pass
  • Use the corner loop only when you have lots of time (typically on a power play breakout)

A good breakout pass can be the difference between creating an offensive scoring opportunity, or finding the puck in the back of your own net. Last week we covered passing options for neutral zone regroups – in this week’s video, we’ll take a look at options for picking up a loose puck in the defensive zone.

Teaching Key Points:

  • Prior to picking the puck up:
    • Look over your shoulder prior to picking the puck up
    • Angle in when approaching the puck (don’t skate straight at it)
  • Strong-side pass option (wing or center):
    • Move the puck quickly
    • Eliminate unnecessary stickhandles
    • Avoid rimming the puck around the wall if at all possible
    • Identify which pass option is available prior to picking up the puck
  • D to D pass:
    • Move the puck quickly
    • Eliminate unnecessary stickhandles
    • Know if your partner is right or left-handed
    • Don’t jam your partner up by putting the puck to close to the wall
    • Don’t rim the puck around the wall
  • Escape turn:
    • Use the net for protection initially
    • Turn toward the boards, protecting the puck
    • Move the puck quickly
    • Accelerate out of the turn

This week’s video covers a very useful tip for defensemen to utilize on breakouts.  Many young defensemen inadvertently give the forechecking pressure a lane to close them off or take the body instead of using the net as added protection to gain the advantage.  This video covers how to properly use the  net to your advantage.
