The ability to create offense from the point is a required skill in today’s game. In this clip, we see how to the ability to manipulate your body around the puck and get pucks to the net without being blocked is a skill that extends offensive zone time and second and third scoring opportunities.
Welcome to OMHA Video Coach where we review a video clip from game action and then break down the sequence into frames identifying key skills, individual and team tactics, strategy and hockey IQ. Video is a great teaching tool that can be used by both players and coaches.
D1 jumps off the wall backwards and receives a pass from D2. D1 receives the pass with a “soft catch” and lets the puck come across their body, with no stickhandle and shoots on net from the middle of the ice.
After the first shot, D1 skates back along the blue line towards D2 and receives a second pass. D1 receives the pass with a “soft catch”, wraps their hips around the puck with no stickhandle and takes a shot on goal with their toes facing the net.
