Attacking the High Seam (Video & Examples)

Posted by Kevin - Filed under: Instructional Video
Tags: ,

We have gotten a lot of great feedback from users on our video on attacking the high seam off the half-wall.  Lots of people wrote us asking to see it in action, so we provided a series of links to additional videos showing the use of the seam to either create a goal or set one up.  In case you missed our video – we have embedded it below.  The example video links are located below the video.

Examples of this seam in action:

Basic Example: http://video.nhl.com/videocenter/console?id=2013020618-325-h  (watch how the D pulls up at the hash marks)

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)
