Description

with Blaise MacDonald, Colby College Head Coach;
former University of Massachusetts Assistant Coach;
former UMASS-Lowell Head Coach

When successfully executed, the power play can create an emotional lift for your team and an emotional energy drain for your opposition.

Blaise MacDonald begins with an overview of power play strategies at each level of the game. He discusses how the power play becomes more of a factor in games as players advance in level.

MacDonald presents seven key technical and tactical ingredients for creating the best possible line up for your successful Man-Up Mission. Included in these key ingredients are helpful considerations on how to select the players that have the best technical and mental attributes for being on a power play unit.

Next, MacDonald presents a detailed overview of the technical skill set of the Man-Up Mission, followed by an on-ice demonstration of the tactical element to each set. The four areas covered include:

  • Breakout - Learn how to best get the puck out of the defensive and neutral zone with established routes and support. MacDonald demonstrates four set breakouts that can be used by players of all ages.
  • Entry into Zone - MacDonald details a hard wrap, soft chip and initial rush carry to enter the zone.
  • In-Zone Set-up - Discover strategizes for quickly getting into the system and changing the point of attack, including face off strategies to start a power play.
  • Point Pressure - Emphasizes the importance of getting to the point as quickly as possible.

Each segment features marker board diagrams followed by on-ice demonstrations that make these techniques clear and concise.

In the final segment, Drills and Skills, MacDonald presents live play that shows how to train your team for developing quick puck movement with an emphasis on point pressure.

The techniques and tactics in this video are appropriate for all levels of the game. This presentation is sure to assist you developing a dedicated and successful plan for your team's Man-up Mission!

This is a top notch video. Coach McDonald has once again provided us with an exceptional teaching session. This video takes you from the breakout to zone entry and into the power play itself. From one end of the ice to the other Coach McDonald first diagrams and then provides on ice demonstrations of his ideas. If you are looking to learn about the power play and how to successfully teach your team the fundamentals of the power play, this is the video you want to watch. Coach McDonald is an excellent teacher and gets his message across to the viewer in a fashion that is easy to follow and understand. He goes even deeper than just the x's and o's in this video, he discusses what makes for a good breakout and why he teaches his players certain ways to do things. Very informative and well worth the cost.
