Defense Turns (Video)

Defense turns are an essential pivot to learn for both forward and defensemen.  A “D turn” is a transition from forward to backward using a 1 or 2 foot stopping technique into a cross-over to change directions.

  1. Great tip, thanks. Good to see the technique broken down, especially the part about loading up the outside skate.

    This skill can serve wingers as well where they apply pressure to the puck but don’t want to get burned.
