Power Play Principles

In this video, Topher Scott from The Hockey Think Tank gives us a comprehensive breakdown of a goal that was generated by Brianne Jenner’s power-play principles on both the breakout and inside the zone. The video is a great example on how to successfully use your eyes and body language to deceive defenders and open up passing lanes. Key Points
When breaking out, always keep your head up to scan the ice for passing options.

  Use your eyes to deceive defenders and get them to cheat to one side and open up passing lanes on the breakout.

  Upon entering the zone you don’t always have to get to your PP spot immediately if a broken play opportunity opens up.

  Patience and deception are keys to opening up passing lanes on the Power Play.

  Use your eyes for deception to really sell a fake shot or pass and freeze the defenders.
