Topic: Teaching Faceoffs
Presenter: Todd Woodcroft

Todd Woodcroft is an assistant coach with the NHL’s Winnipeg Jets. For Woodcroft and the Jets, starting each shift with possession of the puck has been a big factor in their impressive climb up the standings this year.

Technique is clearly a crucial component of taking a faceoff. Being able to win a draw can lead to a long and productive career in the National Hockey League or any league, really. If you can skate and compete at an even level while the play is flowing, but you can add proficient faceoff prowess to your arsenal, then you’re a valuable asset to the coach.
