READING OF THE GAME

Looking For Open Lanes

LOOKING FOR OPEN LANES is the ability to see and use the open space on the ice to complete a successful pass. Players must look anywhere on the ice for a passing lane that will provide an opportunity to pass the puck to their teammate successfully. They must recognize patterns during the game well enough to systematically predict what will happen next. Players need to constantly be aware of any passing lane sand skate to receive the puck. Now more than ever, players must cover the ice with powerful lateral mobility and controlled agility. They must position themselves to not only receive the pass but to accelerate and make a good play when they receive the puck.
