2016 Hockey Coaches Conference
Topic: The Importance of Face-offs
Presenter: Steve Spott and Bob Boughner

San Jose Sharks Assistant Coaches, Steve Spottand Bob Boughner provided an extremely thorough overview on the Sharks’ philosophy and strategies when it comes to face-offs.  The pair walked our audience through various scenarios such as location of the draw, use of personnel, time remaining in the game, special teams, the score…etc.

When you start to think about it, if you account for the all circumstances your team will find itself in during a given game, that’s a lot of faceoff plays you need to cover with your group. It’s likely too much to cover in one practice or to expect your players to digest in one shot. Making time to touch on face-offs throughout the season is important and will make a huge difference in your team’s ability to control the play come playoff time.
