Welcome to the next installment in a series of videos from Hockey Coach Vision!
Every few weeks throughout the year, the staff at Hockey Coach Vision, including Larry Huras, Filip Kostovic and Franjo Zajec, will release a new training video to help you as a coach pass on hockey-specific tips, training and skills to the next generation of ice hockey players.
In our 34th installment, Hockey Coach Vision continues with “PK Defender Cross Fire.”
“The object of this small area game is to work on defensive skills by penalty-killing players as well as sharpening the offensive passing skills by the six blue players on the outside of the ice.” — Larry Huras
Set up with three attackers on both sides of the end zone with three defenders down the middle. The attackers try to maintain puck control and make as many cross-ice passes as possible through the defenders. One defender tries to force the puck carrier to limit his time and space and force passes into tight areas. The other two defenders position themselves to cut off cross-ice passes. Defenders may rotate in a new active defender when the original defender rotates out to the middle area.
