In this 3-part presentation, Mike McShane takes you through a complete guide to the power lock forechecking system that he has used with great success.

You will learn four objectives to maximize the power lock forechecking system: Turnovers, Transition, Retrievals, and Attacks.

Get detailed instruction on the power lock forechecking system in all three zones:

  • Offensive Zone - Aggressively attack the puck in the offensive zone while providing defensive support.
  • Neutral Zone - Position your players to create turnovers and quickly transition into the attack.
  • Defensive Zone - Provide your team with effective options for breaking the puck out of the defensive zone.

In each zone, McShane diagrams the positions and strategies for successful forechecking. He details the responsibilities of each player and how best to transition into the attack. Following the marker board sessions, McShane demonstrates the strategies on the ice.

McShane concludes the presentation with a system review that also profiles the foundational skills and the personnel breakdown of the power lock forechecking system.

Create more offense and better defensive support using Mike McShane's power lock forechecking system!

The Power Lock Forecheck Coach McShane describes in this video is basically the Red Wings LW Lock, so if you are interested in bringing this type of system to your team you will be very happy with this video.

There is a section where Coach McShane talks about using the Lock in the neutral zone and how to transition from a turnover into an offensive attack. That section alone is worth the price of the DVD. He explains in good detail each players responsibility and how to quickly transition to attack mode. He uses players on the ice also to demonstrate the Lock philosophy in all three zones.

Keep in mind to successfully run the Lock forecheck you need players who fit the system. A LW who can play defensive hockey. A LD who can control the middle of the ice and a C and RW who can skate and be aggressive.

This is a good video and I recommend it to any coach looking to learn and get a better understanding of a different forechecking system.
