2016 Hockey Coaches Conference
Topic: Creating Offense From the Cycle
Presenter: Jay Woodcroft
Nowadays, with the premium placed on protecting the defensive zone, a premium demanded by every successful coach in the game today, it’s harder than ever to score. So coaches work on scoring off the rush, which is rare. Coaches work on getting shots through from the point and then attacking the spray, which is less rare.
For Jay Woodcroft, creating offense from the cycle is an under-rated component of the game, that, with the right players, can pay huge dividends in your team’s game. The key to finding that offense for the coaching staff in Edmonton is establishing inside body position.
