2018 Pro Skills and Drills
Topic: Puck Protection
Presenter: Glenn Carnegie
“In any drill adding our D into the offense is a great way to create confusion in the top half of the offensive zone.” – Glenn Carnegie
This is where Glenn Carnegie, skills instructor for the Vancouver Canucks, comes in. You see, it’s all fine and good to get your defensemen jumping into the rush – but you still have to get them the puck if you want to take advantage instead of firing it wide and starting the other team’s breakout.
How do we do that? With delays, escapes, and deception. In this week’s instalment of Pro Skills & Drills, Glenn teaches the finer details of protecting the puck and maneuvering through traffic with the puck on a string.
