It’s an old cliche, but practice makes perfect.

Want to get better at something? Practice it over and over and over again.

For Luke Strand, head coach of the USHL’s Sioux City Musketeers, it starts with getting players out of their comfort zone.

Strand spoke at our 2020 Virtual Hockey Summit in September, looking at in-zone offence situational skills, and ways to transfer those skills from practices to games.

“We can make a player better daily, and not only daily on the ice, but off the ice in preparation,” Strand said.

Strand provided several specific examples of in-zone offensive skills from NHL games, then showed with video how to work on them in practice. It was an incredibly practical presentation that many coaches will find helpful.
