This is a good routine to use at the start of practice instead of just skating around the ice aimlessly. Work for 10 min. and get in a lot of reps.
-----------------------------------------------

B5 Murdoch Breakout Routine A and B

D shoulder check on the way to the puck.
Forwards funnel through middle lane and watch puck before swinging up the boards.

Wings and Defense
A. Coach shoots puck in and D gets the puck and passes to the wing who times his skating from inside to outside. D to W back to D and up to wing. Then repeat on the other side.
B. Coach shoots the puck in and D skates back to get in while the wing times his skating from the middle to the outside lane.
The D drives the back of the net and stops and goes out the same direction making a counter pass to the wing, who returns the pass and gets another pass.Repeat on the other side.

centreman to do 5-0 full ice reps.

Both wings watch the puck from the middle zone and time their skating to be available for the pass. D1 behind to D2 to F1 to D2 to F2 and out. try to pass to all three forwards and back to D twice. i.e. D to C to D to F2 to F1.

This booklet by PAUL WILLETT was posted on the old bulletin board. It is a great starter for using SAG's in practice.

It is very difficult to teach transitioning from; 1 puck carrier to 2 pass receiver or 3 first checker or 4 defending away from the puck if you don't use games during practice.

If you simply use drills there is no higher thinking and problem solving required. The coach has already given the What, Where, When and How. The player doesn't need to solve these problems. There usually is no Why. So following instructions and skills vs no pressure are learned. Even when situations are practices like a 2-1 the player knows beforehand that it is a 2-1 and only needs good technique and mechanics, which are very important but not the ideal way to develop the Complete Player.

So transitioning between roles and problem solving are the main reasons for using games. The tacit learning is really how we learn to do most things. Other benefits are the fitness from efficient use of the ice and the F word which I have gotten in a lot of trouble for using over the last 30 years. I will say it. FUN

D400 Games of 1-1 to 2-2 with Multiple Nets

Key Points:Sometimes you have many goalies. Here is a game that you can use up to 3 nets and work on the offensive and defensive principles and skills of 1-1, 2-1, 1-2, 2-2. I have used this formation with up to 4 nets in hockey schools, team tryouts and situations like I have now with 3 goalies.

Description:Players line up along the boards with the defensive teams player being first in line and the offensive player next.

1. Offensive player attacks 1-1 vs the defensive player.
2. New defensive player follows the attack and gives support (either active or passive depending on how long you want the original 1-1 to last)
3. On a turnover or a goal the supporting defender gets a pass or takes the puck out of the zone and turns back at the red line and attacks vs the original attacker. When the puck is out of the zone the original defender rests at the end of the line.
4. When the new attacker crosses the defender gets support from a teammate at the front of the line. Repeat.

This is a great game to progress from instructing how to play a defensive or offensive 1-1 and then putting it into a game situation. The rotation can even be used to practice team play with larger numbers when you only have a half ice practice. . i.e. a 3-2 and 3 new players support, one goes low to make it a 3-3 low while the other two are passive at the top of the circles. Breakout and turn back vs the original attacker 3-3 and have 2 support, next 3 support.

TC Whiteboard Practice Planning Template

I posted this in the files section but will also put it here.

Technicoach is the drills program that I use for diagrams and to export them I save them as jpg files. A coach could use this template with the drills and games I have posted or that they have created and make a practice plan to send to the team or to print out.

I will attach it here.

I save my practices as pdf files and send them to my asst. coaches. I am attaching an example of this as well. You can paste in the descriptions and diagrams from pdf's of drills and practices.

Simply copy and paste diagrams and descritions and then save the under another name and you keep the original template. This is a Great Planning Tool.

Other options: only the back hand part of the stick, backward skating, stick to feet, etc.

C. 3 shot, 3 zig zags, 3 passes, 3 shots. 1. Start with 3 players skating from the corner and shooting 2 “ apart. 2. each player gets a pass from the opposite corner. 3. Do 3 zig-zags between the top of the circle and blue line. 4. Fill the 3 lanes and shoot at the far end and rebound.

Penalty Killing Principles

A couple of days ago I asked Bob Murdoch, former two time Stanley Cup winning player and Coach of the Year in the NHL and Germany if he would discuss his thought on specialty teams with me. Last year I was coaching with Pierre Page and he used a very aggressive PK that they used together as assistants on the Flames. So I wanted to compare their ideas. Mud agreed to meet with me and we went to an empty dressing room after our over 55 morning game and I listened for an hour.

hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/pdisplay.php?pid=3847 is his hockey db profile and he played for legends like Fr. Bauer, Scotty Bowman and coached with Bob Johnson who he thing was the best teacher.

So here are the thoughts that we talked about and drew on the coaching board.

Penalty Killing:

Murdoch has gone away from the ultra aggressive penalty kill rotation that Pierre uses with the Red Bulls. He thinks it works great if all 4 players move together every time but if they don’t rotate or over rotate then it leave players open in scoring positions.

Don't get tied up with players, you must be free to rotate. Take their stick when the puck is coming don’t wrestle them.

- Don't finish checks on the pk. It takes you out of the play and you can’t rotate.

- Skate in straight lines up and back and Don't Chase to the Outside.

- D should not go to the point.

- Don't rotate positions but challenge the puck and then drop back into the slot area.

- Drop back quickly so they can’t pass behind you. It is the most dangerous play.
