1 Power Play USA Hockey Level 3 CEP Clinic Brian Johnson

2 Concepts “Out Support” the penalty killers  Create numerical advantages on any loose puck and at the point of attack Move the puck and move yourself away from pressure  Create time and space for better decisions  Force the penalty killers to move and adjust

3 Concepts Shots require a screen  The goal of our power play attack is to have a realistic opportunity to create a screen on each shot  The player must be willing to screen the goalie and pay the price (take away the eyes)  90% of goals involve a screen

4 Concepts Isolate and attack the seams of a defense  The goal is to get the puck to the prime scoring area through the “seams” of the box  When a seam is opened, threaten by taking “open ice”

5 Concepts Be patient and poised  Avoid forcing play possessing the puck puts pressure on the penalty killers  Force the killers to continually adjust every adjustment produces a potential breakdown

6 Concepts Mental toughness and discipline are crucial  Prepare to match the work ethic and intensity of the penalty killers  Be committed to the tactics, concepts and systems we choose to use

7 Concepts A good power play serves as an enforcement tool, as a means of intimidation and as a deterrent  If the opposing team is afraid to take a penalty, the game has changed in our favor  Teams can’t afford to take dumb penalties against a good power play

8 Concepts Stay with your forehand  All passes should be made from the forehand  Be in position to catch all passes on the forehand  Consider how you position players so that each one is on the forehand side with the possibility of a one-timer
