Killing off a penalty can be one of the most critical turning points of a game. Your team finally ices the puck, and you get a fresh set of legs on the ice to go pressure the opposing team while they’re setting up their breakout….now what? If you’re dealing with older players, it is important your players know their responsibilities and the lanes they’re defending.
I’ve created a short-but-sweet PDF file outlining a basic penalty kill forecheck. The file also outlines each player’s basic responsibility. I hope you find it helpful!
