Tom, I watched a AAA game last night and I remember watching a Kootenay Ice game once where this was done very well. Many teams do this better than others too (NHL down thru Jr. and college).
Basic premise is to allow entry to the NZ but NOT to allow the puck carrier to get past the red line thus forcing a dump in, turnover and eventual transition.
Any ideas for drills to use OR is this just best done on the board and/or in the dressing room as a "pre-game" discussion topic.
Promotes aggressiveness in the NZ, good (proper) D gap control, etc.
Maybe you have some key points as to how "set this up" for the puck carrying team, proper positioning for the F's and/or D that's doing the pressuring in the NZ or other tidbit?
Thanx as always Tom.
Hopefully the site is working out well for you and the other coaches.
