UMASS-Lowell Head Coach Blaise MacDonald shows you how to "take away time and space" from you opponent in order to protect your goal. Coach MacDonald's zone defensive system provides: aggressive defense on the puck, a solid secondary line of support, a good net front and slot defensive presence, and a strong-side forward to away any easy release opportunities. In addition, MacDonald covers swarm defensive zone coverage to outnumber your opponent in a confined area to create a loose puck. MacDonald also includes five drills to help build the zone defensive system. These drills cover everything from warm-ups to coordinate movements, to weakside play and rollouts. Throughout this hockey DVD, MacDonald first diagrams the teaching points and positioning on the whiteboard, and then he runs through the details on the ice with his players. MacDonald touches on the team and individual principles needed to make this system work so that you are always protecting your house. 48 minutes. DVD. 2009.
