In episode 3 of The Breakdown with Dave Starman, Dave dives deep into developing defencemen and explains his strategies for getting them involved in the offensive side of the game.
As someone who has been directly involved in coaching and developing defencemen over recent years, he believes that in order to have a potent offence, they have to be active in the attack.
“If I’m watching a game…I want to see all players on one team in the same zone,” says Dave. “If I’m showing players clips, I want to make sure that we’ve got five in the frame, five in the zone, so that way, we know that everybody’s involved and everybody’s important on the attack.”
Watch as he breaks down game video and offers strategies for creating a an offensive-minded defenceman.
