Pops, Paul, Paulie, I have started a new topic on the forecheck. If you check out the team play video section http://hockeycoachingabcs.com/mediagallery/album.php?aid=29&page=1 the first 3 video's with 5 on 2 practice the rush and then the forecheck.
If I have at least 3 sets of D and 3 lines I change the forward lines out of one end and the D out of the other. If my team is short of players then I may have 3 sets of 2 offensive forwards change in one end and the 3 backs in the other end.
I use LW as the defensive forward (and they do in the video) C and RW as the offensive forwards (attacking with 2 deep on a pressure forecheck 2-1-2 and with a 1-1 tandem on a contain 1-3-1 forecheck as when they are set up behind the net). The RD is the offensive defenseman and the LD is the defensive defenseman.
We had the F1 or C play the low 3-3 in the defensive zone and used the C on faceoffs.
My college women's team used the forecheck with more of a contain philosophy by the RD and LW. I would now have them more involved in the offense. Here is a video vs the U of Calgary showing the forecheck.
