Defence in today’s game is a specialized position.
I recently watched a Los Angeles Kings game on TV and during the opening, the commentators were describing the play of elite defenseman Drew Doughty. They talked about five things Doughty does to be an elite defenseman:
- Make the first pass.
- Limit turnovers.
- Defend well.
- Have a Fast Transition.
- Join the Rush – be the fourth man.
Let’s look at each point in more detail and add some teaching points that players and coaches can use to help improve their game.
