Special teams play is critical to the overall success of all hockey programs. In this video, 2012 AHCA National Coach of the Year Jack Arena takes you step-by-step through his "Beast" penalty kill system that will turn up the pressure on your opponent and force turnovers for easy penalty kill clears.
Coach Arena uses white board instruction to describe each aspect of his penalty kill philosophy before taking you onto the ice. He clearly breaks down both the technical components of individual play, as well as the tactical approach of four players working together for penalty killing success.
Coach Arena provides great detail on how to effectively kill penalties using various forechecking systems. Through his instruction you will learn:
While penalty killing is not as glamorous as the power play, Coach Arena shows you how to motivate your players creating a culture for a strong, successful penalty kill system for your program.

I watched this DVD twice so far and I like the system he is teaching. The idea of taking on the rush more in the neutral zone is interesting and is a change for many coaches, but one I think can work really well if taught properly. Much of it reminds me of the NZ Trap, but applied using just four skaters.
I think the defensive zone rotational aspect of coverage is very good, but one you will need time to teach your team properly. This may be geared more toward the Bantam (13/14 yr old) and above levels because it really will take some time to teach the team how to rotate into coverage properly. The basic idea is to force 1 on 1 situations close to the net and the inevitable 2 on 1 as far from the puck / net as possible.
Coach Arena offers a few principles to penalty killing that I think should be helpful to every coach who views this DVD. He also offers two small ice games to help with the tactics of the PK.
Overall an excellent DVD and one that I am very happy I picked up.
