1 Penalty Kill – Opening Remarks Penalty Killing is a critical part of the game from a defensive standpoint. Momentum is won & lost by the penalty kill at pivotal points in every game. It is an area of the game that requires players to work together in total unison to avoid breakdowns.It’s not glamorous with offensive accolades & it doesn’t show up on the score sheet individually, but it requires extreme intelligence, courage, & passion.
2 Penalty Kill Principles Aggressive vs Positional-Appropriate pressure-Keep shifts under 30 seconds (time on ice)-1 goes, we all go (trigger moments)-Discourage passing lanes with good stick position-Protect scoring areas (promote perimeter play)-Outnumber & overload (good angles & force passes through you)-Develop a mindset based on your principles-Adjustments are made….but the Principles stay the same.
3 PK KEYS -Faceoff wins & exit plans -Clears 200 ft (one chance to clear mentality)-Be fresh, proper changes eliminate fatigue-Stick & body positions-Commitment / Desperation / Courage (Shot blocking & sacrifice)-Intelligence (develop killers through instruction), some players are naturals-Communication (everyone must be on the same page)-Have a language for your killers
4 Penalty Kill - INZONE Team Philosophy “Trigger Moments” -Rebounds -Bouncing / rolling pucks-Opponent facing wall- Pucks rimmed on wall-Everyone jump togetherSituational Scenarios-Transfer vs Non-Transfer-D strong side vs D backsideBe flexible & adjust accordingly
5 CREATE AN ATTITUDE ON THE KILL -Challenge the killers (practice, video, dialogue)-Players take pride in the kill (positive reinforcement)-Team within team (t-shirts, hats)-Competition with PP in practice-HAVE THEM TAKE OWNERSHIP!
