Eyes, hands, feet, stick - they're all a crucial part of faceoffs.

This week on The Breakdown, Dave Starman does another deep dive into how to create scoring chances from offensive zone face-offs. This is Part 2 on faceoffs, and you can watch Part 1 here.

A self-proclaimed “face-off nerd,” Starman believes that it is often a neglected skill/tactic in youth hockey.

In this episode, Starman focused more on how to handle one-on-one draws and how to read your opposition. Eyes, hands, feet, stick – they’re all a crucial part of faceoffs and this video will leave you with tips and tricks to teach your players so you can make the most of your time at the dot.
