DT Transition Game Presentation
In a hockey game players are in constant transition from offense to defense to loose puck situations. On offense the player either has the puck or is supporting the puck carrier. On defense the player is either checking the puck carrier, double teaming or supporting away from the puck. Constant decisions have to be made concerning loose puck situations which happen about 30% of the time in a hockey game.
Transition games are the natural progression from game situation drills of 1-1 to 3-2. They simulate a real game situation because the player must go from offense to defense or from defense to offense and also battle for loose pucks.
