Offensive Zone Play and StrategiesOffensive Zone Play and Strategies
with Blaise MacDonald, Colby College Head Coach;
former Head Coach at UMass-Lowell

It has grown increasingly difficult to score goals against well-trained, highly competitive players. In addition, with improvements in equipment, players are more willing to block shots than ever before. To generate offense, coaches must develop new attacking angles, good spacing and forward thinking players to create good offensive opportunities.

Blaise MacDonald, who has won a national championship as a player and coach, gives you a toolbox of tactics and drills for teaching effective offensive play and strategies for today's game.

You'll get a series of easy-to-teach drills for offensive attack, puck protection and cycling to create dynamic and dangerous scoring opportunities. Coach MacDonald's drills emphasize spacing and puck movement, quick attacks to the net and good front-of-the-net presence. Your athletes will learn to play effectively below the goal line and tight around the net by protecting the puck and attacking quickly and aggressively.

This DVD delivers critical drills for improving offensive play and strategies that will have your team spending more time in the offensive zone rather than the defensive zone.

Angling and Defensive DevelopmentAngling and Defensive Development
with Blaise MacDonald, Colby College Head Coach;
former head coach at UMass-Lowell

Proper angling and defensive skills are critical in today's faced-paced game. This holds for all levels of play, but especially with younger players where body checking has been removed. Using whiteboard discussion complemented with on-ice drills, Blaise MacDonald presents his key concepts to good angling and defensive play. Coach MacDonald, who has won a national championship as a player and coach, shares drills that develop the tools needed to develop effective defenders in all three zones.

This video has over 16 drills to properly train good angling skills and techniques while teaching the critical concepts of playing solid defense in the neutral zone and defensive zone. In addition, you get a series of drills to improve your defensemen's ability to make plays on the breakout in their own zone and to be effective members on offense, as well.

This presentation is full of "read and react" drills where players compete against one another using transitional skating. Your players will learn how to judge the speed of an opponent while using controlled skating and steering techniques. They will learn how to use points of reference and how to establish a good angle, pushing the puck carrier into bad ice, taking away time and space, ultimately separating the puck carrier from the puck.

Use these drills to help players become more comfortable in uncomfortable situations, which, in turn, will help them select the right responses quickly during games.

The teaching concepts in this presentation combined with the game-like competitive drills make this a must-have DVD for players and coaches at any level.

62 minutes. 2014.

Really good stuff here. Each DVD has specialized drills for either the forwards or the defensemen, but also incorporate both. The one thing I really liked about these two discs is the pace of the clips. Coach MacDonald does a review of the drill on the board and then they show it run on the ice. Most of the drills only show four or five reps and then bang off to the next drill. The entire thing moves along at a great pace and there is no wasted time. I'm not sure how many drills are on each disc but I'd say at least 15 on each.
Coach MacDonald has done a few other coaching videos over the years and I've found all to be very helpful. I also feel he does an excellent job explaining the drill and the "Why" of the drill. If you run full ice practices, these DVD's will give you a great starting point to work F's on one end and D's on the other end. I personally like to split my ice for 30 minutes or so at practice so I can work on position skill development and these drills will really help. Well worth the investment.
