Book Description

29 Oct 1998 Hockey the NHL way
Offense may often get the glory--but defense is what wins games. Get the inside scoop on this important, but sometimes overlooked, aspect of hockey. Highlighted by 120 full-color action photographs of NHL players in mid-game, and liberally sprinkled with personal tips from luminaries such as Ray Bourque, Chris Chelios, and Scott Stevens, Win with Defense shows you how to master the art of controlling the play and stopping the puck. Playing defense in all three zones, maintaining position, keeping the opposition bottled up, goalproofing your line, skating backwards, and making body contact: every skill young players need to play the game like the NHL greats is broken down into easy-to-understand steps with how-to photos and text. Sean Rossiter, as the writer of nine hockey books--including three in this series--is a real expert on the subject, and was aided by an advisory panel of coaches from every level of hockey. It's everything that will help up-and-coming players to master both the basic and advanced skills of the game. 64 pages (all in color), 8 x 10.

Product Description

From the Author

Learn to Play Without the Puck
Many players, coaches, parents and spectators fail to recognize that in the game of hockey, individual puck possession can be less than 1 minute per player during the entire game. This means that while players should practice all their puck control skills so they're truly ready when an opportunity presents itself, all other skill areas of the game also deserve a lot of attention in practice. Good defensive teams like the 97/98 Dallas Stars demonstarted that a team will create excellent offensive opportunities as a result of playing sound defense. Young players in the game today should be excited about developing good defensive skills and take pride in the results of their efforts. Having a positive attitude toward defensive hockey is the first step!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book on a little addressed skill 22 Mar 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Terrific book that focuses on the defensive game. Suggestions on read and react, pictures of various checks and positioning away from the play. Language and explanations are easy to follow and understand. Highly recommended!
3.0 out of 5 stars A book for young players 11 Feb 2004
By Freshman Coach - Published on Amazon.com
This is a book written for young players with points to keep in mind when playing. It is written for young players (lots of color pictures and key points to remember) but does not get into any analysis of defensive systems. Good for young players to read. Not so good for coaches who want a better understanding of defense.
