Now that the pretty things are behind us and we know how to draw the X & O’s, let’s start putting it all together.
Once you have the basic layout of your new Hockey Playbook, it’s time to decide what you’re going to track. And don’t just say “everything,” because that’s a lot. Faceoffs, for example, can be won or lost on the right or left side, in different zones. Do you need to separate it all out? I suggest sticking to the fundamentals, namely faceoff win/lost in three zones, breakouts, D-zone, rush, regroup, OZP, PP OZP, PP regroup, PP breakout, PK DZ, PK forecheck, PP/PK faceoff, 6v5, 5v6 and more.

Now, everyone doesn’t have the same fundamentals and that’s fine. It’s your motto, not somebody else motto. Having too much can be a nightmare as well. In the picture below, a friend of mine who won the NAPA Cup in Qc Jr.A League and finish 4th at the Centennial Cup was willing to share with me his three slides of his fundamentals. With that, he adds videos for each of them when he explains drills. He always refers to them. You now can too.
