Playing defense in ice hockey is a specialized position that takes years to learn and develop. Using a classroom setting with diagrams and practice footage, former NHL defenseman Rick Zombo takes you through a series of drills that will help you accelerate the process!
Coach Zombo's nuts and bolts instruction focuses on six areas:
Concepts and Situations - Gain insights into topics such as on-ice awareness and how to be an aggressive defender by using your stick and your body. The concept of defensive side position is delivered with precise detail, clear diagrams and on-ice examples.
Breakout Passing - Includes eight drills that develop crucial skills for getting the puck out of the defensive zone efficiently and creating offense. The drills cover puck retrieval, escapes or turns, making the first pass, using your partner in an over pass or a reverse and more. Coach Zombo demonstrates how to use the net to your advantage when beating a forechecker.
Transition Skating and Regroups - You'll see Neutral Zone Regroups, how to use the hinge and blue line transition skating, transition drills and more.
Defending the 1-on-1, 2-on-1 and 3-on-2 - Five drills cover game situations on how to play the 1-on-1 (including the concept of gap control), 2-on-1 and 3-on-2. On-the-rush and low defensive zone situations are also described.
Point Shooting - Learn drills and get insights on how and where to take a shot from the point.
