In this edition of The Breakdown, Dave Starman invites University of North Dakota Associate Head Coach Dane Jackson to share his key components to what makes a successful penalty kill, with a focus on pressure and attack triggers.
Jackson, who has coached at UND for 17 seasons and handles the team’s penalty kill, credits the advancement of the modern power play, which has forced him to adapt his tactics.
“The power plays are getting more and more organized. They’re sharper, they know the pressures coming. Our penalty kill has to be more selective on when we go and get those triggers in force situations.”
Starman and Jackson break down what the visual cues are for those attack triggers, when to go for the shot block, and provide a checklist for all coaches to improve their penalty kill.
