Anybody got some simple breakout strategies that you think we could implement? I know this is very vague, but if more info is needed, just ask.
As a defenseman there's nothing more frustrating than picking up the puck and finding that your three forwards are all standing still at the opponent's blueline. The easiest breakout is to have either winger anchor themselves on the boards between the hash marks and the blueline in your own zone. They retrieve the puck and pass it to the centre or other winger, both of whom have started streaking up the ice after seeing the initial pass from the defenseman.
