with Dan Fridgen, former Head Coach, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI).
Cycling is an offensive strategy that provides puck protection and player support, and allows for picks and cutbacks to create scoring opportunities. Dan Fridgen demonstrates a progression of hockey drills to help teach proper cycling at all levels. The drills include individual puck protection drills, one, two, and three player drills with no defense, and two, three, and five player drills with defense. Throughout the drill work, Coach Fridgen demonstrates how to get your defensemen involved in the cycle and how players can use each other to create scoring opportunities.
