2017 Hockey Coaches Conference
Topic: Creating Offense from Below the Dots
Presenter: Glenn Carnegie
Every hockey player playing junior or college hockey in North America has been taught the meat and potatoes of a good forecheck. Stick on puck, reading the defensemen, and supporting F1, F2, and so on. We work on drills to put pucks into space where they can be retrieved, and then we tell our players their skill will take over and we sit back and watch the goals pile up.
Seems easy, right? Well, for Glenn Carnegie, skills instructor with the Vancouver Canucks, offensive principles don’t stop at puck retrieval.
