We did this at practice yesterday and it worked really well. A benefit is that you practice the D joining the rush, the F backchecking and you play a 5-5 at each end but only need 8 F and 8 D. My assistant coach Sean Kibyuk ran this. I will get a video next time.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DT100 Continuous 2 on 2 D - Join Attack F Backcheck

Key Points:
Forwards cover D and D cover F's. One D should join the attack to create triangles and one forward backcheck. Play tight gaps and attackers create 2 on 1's on the rush. Play 5-5 at each end.

Description:
1. Forwards line up on one side and defense on the other.
2. Start with a 2 on 2 attack Blue F1 and F2 vs Red D1 and D2.
3. When the puck enters the zone defensive Red F1 and F2 support Red D1 and D2 and Blue D1 and D2 support Blue F1 and F2.
4. On transition Red D1 join new attack and Blue F1 backcheck
5. If the puck is dumped out with no possession the offensive team regroup and attack again.
6. Red F1-F2-D1 now go 3 on 3 in the other direction vs. Blue D1-D2-F1.
7. Blue F2 - F3 support Blue D1-D2-F1 and Red D3 and D4 support attacking Red F1-F2-D1.
8. This rotation continues with a 5-5 in each zone.

*Various numerical situations can be practiced with this flow. A 1-1 becomes a 3-3 at each end, a 2-1 becomes a 4-4.

I learned this when George Kingston came on the ice for one of our U of Calgary practices. He had left coaching at the U of C to start his NHL and international coaching career. I think it is a miracle working drill where you can practice the offensive options of the pplay or even strength situations along with a controlled breakout. I use this every practice before a weekend series. My teams usually are very good on the power play. We have 15 pp goals in the first 11 games and that has been the case since I started using this practice method. I combine it with requiring a shot every 3" that I picked up from Pierre Page when I was with the Red Bulls in Austria.
When you coach a long time you find that some things are real 'Keepers' and this is one of them.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

T2 Kingston Power Play and Team Play Rotation

Key Points:

Practice options where every player gets a shot. Begin with a rotation attacking the seam between the D and the F and read what they give. If the D forces then the low play is available, if the F forces then the point is open. If the pk box is passive then there is a 2-1 at each corner, a 3-2 on each side and seams between players to attack. Force the pace by taking a shot by a different player every 3 seconds. Coach in each zone

Description:

- Line A at one end practice attack options.
- Line B at other end practice attack options. Both walk through pp 5-0.
- Line C in middle passing practice.
- On whistle line A dump the puck to the other end and breakout returning to the original end while group C replace group B at the far end and group B pass in the neutral zone.
- Repeat with group C breaking out and back and group B switch with group A who move to the middle.

This video clip was buried in the wrong section. It is from a prospects camp when Phaneuf #42 was a rookie. The coach Jim Playfair runs the D through a series of individual and partner skills. I left it together because you could do it all in one part of a practice. Great stuff.

These are two videos for coach background information. The warm-up is from last summer at the Canadian Women's Team Try-out and the Skating is with Dr. Gaston Schaeffer and he goes through the important points on body position. It is very worthwhile to get a background like this if you are teaching these skating skills.

I have seen this power play set up work well but have never tried it. Last night I decided to practice it with the rules that passes should beat only one defender and a shot every 3". It is very difficult to kill vs this formation and I may even try it 5-4.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

T2 Low Dice 5-3 Power Play

Key Points:
Right shooters play on the left side and left on the right to enable quick shots and forehand passing. Quick passes and attacks spread the defensive triangle.

Description:
1. Set up with everyone on the off wing.
2. Middle player stay about the hash marks.
3. Attack rule is that either the puck or the player moves. No standing still.
4. Attack goal is a shot every 3".
5. Use passes that beat one defender.
6. Rotate the high triangle.
7. Attack with: walk-outs, one timers, back door passes. switch and pick.

This is my new favourite sequence to practice team play using a drill and then three transition games that create almost every situation in hockey in all three zones. The first drill has been around for a long time. I liked the way the American League coaches had the new 1-1 go to the red line before turning back. This allowed the original 1-1 F and D to get up into the play. This could be done as a 2-1, 2-2 as well or even a 1-2 which is seldom worked on.

The transition games create 1-1, 2-1, 2-2, 3-2, 3-3, 4-4, 5-5 situations and if you attacked with less numbers like a 1-2 more situations would be created. I still have to do the diagram for the first two transition games.

C3-B6 1-1 to 2-2 Willy-Flames

Forwards cover D and D cover F's. One D should join the attack to create triangles and one forward backcheck. Play tight gaps and attackers create 2 on 1's on the rush. Play 5-5 at each end.

Description:

1. Forwards line up on one side and defense on the other.
2. Start with a 1 on 1 attack Blue F1 vs. Red D1.
3. When the puck enters the zone defensive Red F1 support Red D1 and Blue D1 support Blue F1.
4. On transition Red D1 join new attack and Blue F1 backcheck.
5. If the puck is dumped out with no possession the offensive team regroup and attack again.
6. Red F1-D1 now go 2 on 2 in the other direction vs. Blue D1-F1.
7. Blue F2 support Blue D1- F1 and Red D3 support attacking Red F1-D1.

I have uploaded video clips of drlls, games and shootouts in the B section on the videos. I will do the diagram and descriptions over the next few weeks and then put them in the proper section.

Coding System: Like in a library the practice activities are coded so they are easily found.

Letter Code:
A - Skills and skating
B - Partner skills
C - Game situation
D - Games
DT - Transition Games
E - Shootouts and contests

The number tells where the players line up for drills and whether the game is full ice D1, full ice with extra players who rotate in D100, cross ice D2 or cross ice with extra players waiting D200, etc.

Titles:

B6 One Timers-Pro

B6 Chaos NZ Overspeed with Regroup-Pro

C1, 1-1, 2-2 Battles-Kazakstan

C2 Continuous 4-0 – ProE1 Shoot then Breakaway – Pro

C3 2-1 Regroup 3-1 - Jr. A

D200 Coach Call Options - U22

DT100 Continuous 2 on 2 D - Join Attack F

DT400, 4-2 x 2 – Pro

I have attached two pdf's that explain the coding further. The ABC coaching manual has all of the explanations.

This game is a good way to focus on low battles. Each team can score. Kazakstan is trying to develop it's female program so they can compete internationally and they came to Calgary to train.. There is a huge difference between the top and bottom players on the team. The coaches were raised in the Russian system and they run good practices.
