Dave Starman is back for episode 2 of The Breakdown, where he breaks down some of the smaller components of the game that can make a big difference for your team.
This week, Dave takes a look at an important topic to him personally: how to transition from offence to defence using effective backchecking strategies.
“Being a goalie, this is something that I really understood…the concept of defending, of transitioning back to playing defence, of backchecking, and I always felt it was defence first,” says Starman. “The number one rule is you have to backcheck through the middle because going through the middle means you can get to either side quickly and you’re not constantly crossing the ice.”
